This week’s Do One Thing is all about recycling. Each state and city has their own recycling laws, so it is very important that you find out what can and cannot be recycled where you live. Check to see if your recycling can be mixed together, what kinds of plastic can be recycled (check out my post about the plastic recycling numbers if you are not sure), and if your items need to be cleaned prior to drop off. The last thing you want to do is to either contaminate the recycling stream or make much more work for the people sorting your recyclables. So check with your town or local facility and make sure you are only recycling the stuff that can be recycled in your area!
