Follow our checklist for recycling!


Recycling is an important way to reduce waste and conserve resources. Here's a checklist for recycling to help you stay organized and make sure you're doing your part to protect the environment:

  1. Check with your local recycling program

Different recycling programs may accept different types of materials, so it's important to check with your local program to see what they accept. You can usually find this information on your city or town's website or by calling your local recycling center.

  1. Set up a recycling station

Set up a recycling station in your home where you can collect recyclable materials. This could be a bin or container designated specifically for recyclables. Make sure it's easily accessible and visible to everyone in your household.

  1. Sort recyclable materials

Separate the different types of recyclable materials into their respective categories. Common categories include paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, and metal. This will make it easier to transport the materials to your local recycling center.

  1. Rinse containers

Make sure to rinse out any food or beverage containers before placing them in the recycling bin. This helps to prevent contamination and keeps the materials clean and easier to recycle.

  1. Remove caps and lids

Caps and lids can often be made from a different type of plastic than the container they came with. Remove them before recycling to prevent contamination and ensure that they are properly recycled.

  1. Flatten cardboard and paper

Flatten any cardboard boxes or paper products before placing them in the recycling bin. This helps to save space and makes it easier for the materials to be transported and processed.

  1. Don't recycle certain materials

There are some materials that should not be placed in your recycling bin, including plastic bags, styrofoam, and batteries. Check with your local recycling program to see how to properly dispose of these materials.

By following this recycling checklist, you can make sure that you are doing your part to reduce waste and protect the environment. Remember to stay informed about your local recycling program and to properly sort and clean materials before placing them in the recycling bin.
