All recyclables need to be loose. We know it’s tempting to keep things orderly by putting all your recyclables in plastic (or paper) bags – but it’s a bad idea. Here’s why:

  • Recyclables need to be loose for sorting at the facility.
  • Bagged items often get thrown out since facilities can’t safely determine what’s inside without risk to their employees.
