ACUA SAYS NOT ALL PLASTICS ARE RECYCLABLE
Due to the chemical make-up of some plastic items, the ACUA has changed what types of plastics it will accept as recyclable items. Effective immediately, only plastic bottles and containers labeled with the recycling symbol #1 or #2, with necks smaller than their base are acceptable. Examples include beverage bottles, milk or juice jugs, detergent bottles and condiment containers - lids removed, of course.
OFF of the list are items such as yogurt cups and margarine tubs and any items with the number 3 or higher. The ACUA says "when in doubt, find out, or throw it out". Use the link provided for more information. Questions? Contact the ACUA at 609-272-6950
