This morning I learned something about the items I recycle most – bottles and items with caps.
- Small lids (think water bottles, milk jugs, and condiment containers) often fall through filtering screens and don’t get recycled.
- At recycling plants, containers are easier to filter and bundle when plastics don’t mix (lid plastic’s different than bottle plastic) and the air is pushed out (lids trap air in).
Want another reason to show your kids how fun recycling is?
Check out this webpage that has a whole host of really cool kid-friendly crafts that uses recycled materials!
