Many communities now accept plastics for recycling that are marked with symbols ranging from No. 1 to No. 7. In the past, it was usually just No. 1 and No. 2 (milk jugs and detergent bottles), but all sorts are now recyclable, depending on your curbside program. Beyond plastic food packaging, there are other items that are on that recyclable list, including plastic CD cases, drinking cups, food takeout containers and egg cartons. As always, they should be clean and clearly marked for recycling, and you need to be sure your community takes all recyclable plastics before placing them in the bin.
