Test Your Knowledge - 8 Recycling Myths

Is it or isn’t it? There are quite a few myths when it comes to what is recyclable and what is not. As a Company, we’re continuing to help customers as well as the general public have a solid understanding of what goes in their curbside bin.

Resources like recycling printouts, social media posts and of course, RecyclingSimplified.com are just a few of the ways we’re trying to promote proper recycling habits and dispel common recycling myths. In honor of America Recycles Day, we’ve created an infographic and video below highlighting the eight common recycling myths!
