☷ Mansfield Texas - Plastic Recycling Demystified 20 May 2022

   These symbols look very much like recycling symbols , but have a different meaning .
   According to the EPA
    , these symbols were created by plastic manufacturers to help identity the kind of plastic resin used to make the container , but it doesn’t always mean they can be collected for recycling in your cart .
   The market for recycled plastics changes constantly . Currently , our local provider Republic Services only accepts plastics with the symbols 1 , 2 and 5 . This includes things like soda bottles , water bottles and other clear bottles . Other rigid plastics like medicine bottles , milk jugs , shampoo bottles , detergent jugs , butter and yogurt tubs are also accepted .
   Avoid these common recycling mistakes:
   Plastic shopping bags , films and over wraps can’t go in your recycling cart , but can be taken to your local big - box or grocery store for recycling . These thin plastics are “tanglers” that can jam the sorting machines at processing centers .
   Plastic caps and lids can be recycled if still attached to the plastic container , but not if they are separated . Anything smaller than a credit card can jam the sorting machinery .
   Remember to have items “empty , clean and dry” before tossing recyclables into your cart . Just do a quick rinse or scrape , tap out the liquid and you are good to go!
   Don’t “wish - cycle” , only put things in the bin that you know can be recycled . If you aren’t sure , use the City’s free search tool
   Can I Recycle It?
    to find out .
   Get
   more information on recycling
    and learn
   how to dispose of hazardous household waste
     to help keep Mansfield beautiful .
