Recycling is only good if items are truly recyclable

To recycle or not to recycle that is the question many may have when deciding how to dispose of waste.  Steve Estes of Advanced Disposal in Sturgeon Bay says although people’s intentions may be to be eco-friendly, they can be hindering the recycling process.  He shares some of the more commonly misplaced items that are thrown into the recycle bins.

 

 

Estes says more and more companies are using recyclable packaging and that the general public is becoming more educated in the positive impact that recycling can have on the environment.  Checking the bottom of any container for the recycle logo is a safe way to know if it can be recycled.  Reportedly 60 to 80 percent of recyclable items are actually recycled nationwide.
