We've all done it – accidentally thrown trash into the wrong recycling bin. But thousands of tons of trash are thrown away every day, so "one-off goof" can make quite a difference. An increasing proportion of trash that should be recycled don’t actually make it. And items that do make it into the recycling bin aren’t always recycled due to improper disposal. So how can we know we're always disposing of our recycling correctly?
Pro Tip: Municipal collection systems may differ so we recommend checking your local waste and recycling guidelines.
