Republic Services has a list of what can and can't be recycled on recyclingsimplified.com
The company says all recyclables should be empty, clean and dry -- meaning they are free of food and liquid. Never put recyclables in bags or containers.
Items you can put in your recycling bin:
- Paper and cardboard
- Metal cans
- Plastic bottles and jugs
- Glass (preferably not broken)
Items you should never put in your bin:
- Food waste
- Soiled or wet paper and cardboard
- Bottles filled with liquid
- Coffee cups
- Plastic bags
Republic Services Manager Bill Brinkley says when in doubt, throw it out.
