Many community parks are implementing environmental improvements like recycling bins to make it easier for guests to be green. But if you’re visiting a park during a non-peak day or during an off-peak part of the season, don’t use the recycling bins or trash cans at all. Since these cans will be emptied less frequently, wild animals can get into the recyclables to root around for food. Many get their heads stuck in glass or plastic jars with no way to escape. So instead of recycling or throwing trash away, take it home with you and sort it there.
