Nyla’s Rules for Recycling Plastic

Check the rules for what recyclables are accepted in your local program.

Check for the number to make sure it’s recyclable where you live.

At a minimum, most programs accept plastic bottles and containers like laundry detergent and milk jugs, but make sure you check with your local provider.

Rinse and empty before recycling.

Plastic bags are not accepted in most curbside recycling programs. But don’t worry – you may be able to recycle plastic bags at local participating grocery or retail stores.

Plastic straws and other small loose plastics are typically not accepted in your curbside cart.

What Nyla P. Lastic is listening to

Life isn’t always about recycling. It’s about life – hanging out with your raccoon friends, napping in attic spaces, rummaging through dumpsters, engaging in nocturnal capers and, of course, obsessing about recycling. But no matter how you live your life, you need cool music to go with it.
