Why Can’t I Recycle Everything?Recycling starts when you put the right stuff in your recycling cart.Just because you put something in a recycling bin, it does not mean it can be turnedinto something new. When the wrong stuff goes in the bin, staff at the recycling centerhave to remove these items by hand, and throw them in the garbage.When in doubt,check out yourRecycling Guide!For a recyclable item to be made into a new product,all of these things must be true: reparation: Each recyclable item must be clean and empty of all debris, food or liquids.P eparation: A recycling facility must be able to separate the item into its own material group so each type of itemS— cardboard, aluminum, tin, steel, paper, glass, plastic containers — can be properly distributed to the correctmanufacturers. Markets: A manufacturer must be willing to buy this material. Manufacturing: A manufacturer must be able to make a new product out of the recycled item. 2015 WM Intellectual Property Holdings, L.L.C.
