Know your city’s recycling rules
Did you know that recycling rules can vary greatly from one city to the next? For instance, some cities are super strict about rinsing food containers spotless and others can handle a bit of dried food. Some cities accept fruit pouches, markers, and pizza boxes and some don’t. Take the time to go to your city’s website to read up on the rules because you could be inadvertently sending something to landfill over and over again because you think it’s recyclable or because you’re recycling it wrong.
