What Should You Observe When Disposing of Trash for Recycling?

It is crucial for items heading for recycling to undergo cleaning properly. A few mistakes can make your trash not recyclable. Before anyone starts filling a dumpster rental with recycling trash, here are a few things you need to note.

  1. Pour out any liquids that are in bottles and rinse them out before placing them in the dumpster. Rinsing the bottles removes any food and reduces the chance of contamination. Sometimes the recycling companies rinse the bottles, but it is not common practice.
  2. Remove the caps and lids in the bottles before placing the bottles or container in the recycling dumpster. Lids and caps are small, making it easy for them to slip through the sorting machines and contaminating the whole batch.
  3. Do not put paper cups, juice, wine, or milk boxes in the dumpster rentals. Paper cups and plates that hold liquids have a thin layer of plastic to avoid leakage. Sadly, it's not possible to separate the plastic from the paper.
  4. Food packaging boxes like pizza boxes should be thrown out with regular trash. The grease contaminates a pizza box, making it unsuitable for recycling.
  5. All paper should go in the recycling trash dumpster except paper cups and food packaging boxes. Shredded paper should be placed in a container and labeled.  There are many uses for a recycled paper like tissue paper. Gift wraps, shredded paper, cartons, and brown paper need recycling.
  6. Plastics bags are not recyclable. They also jam the recycling machines when they are put together with recycling trash. Plastic bags should be in the regular trash dumpster. Anyone can reduce the usage of plastic bags or replace them with zip-lock bags. Zip-lock bags are reusable and washable.
  7. Electronics like computers, radios, game consoles, chargers, and TVs are hazardous materials. They cannot undergo the recycling process. Homeowners and businesses that have electronics pay for particular disposal of dangerous trash.
  8. There are specific types of glass and plastic suitable for recycling. Mirrors, bulbs, or glass cookware are unsuitable for recycling. Only plastic number 1 and 2 go for recycling. Each plastic item has a category number, which is usually inside the recycling logo. Confirm the type of plastic before placing it in the dumpster rentals.
