It’s officially the New Year and that means resolutions for 2020. Together, let’s resolve to recycle right this year. We all know the three recycling basics:
Know what to throw. There are three primary categories of recyclables: paper and cardboard, metal cans, and plastic bottles and jugs. With bottles and jugs, remember to keep the caps on.
Empty. Clean. Dry.® Don’t allow more than one teaspoon of liquid to remain in a recyclable container.
Don’t Bag it. Never bag or bundle your recyclables. Items should be placed in the container individually. Plastic bags are one of the biggest contaminants we see at our recycling facilities.
Even though we know the basics, we can each take steps to become a better recycler. Share with us one action you will take this year to be a recycling superstar or reduce your environmental impact. We’ll gather everyone’s recycling resolutions and share them here on Blue Nation Online. Winners will receive a prize package from the Company Store. We’ll announce winners the week of February 3. (We’ll also follow up with the winners at the end of the year to see how they did on achieving their goal!)
