|Is everything plastic recyclable?
That magical thing that happens once you throw that plastic bottle, cup, cap, lid, spoon, etc isn’t as magical as you might think. I’ve been researching this for the last year, and at every turn I’ve found so many things that we’ve been misinformed about.
The recycling facilities do not accept everything for recycling.
Compared to all that we consume, what the recycling facilities accept are too limited.
The challenges are in educating people about types of plastics out there, what can be recycled and how, and what can’t be recycled at all. And this changes from one municipality to another since recycling is tied to Cities.
