Recycling empty cans, bottles, boxes and paper is one of the easiest and most effective ways to cut down on landfill waste. But did you know that a greasy pizza box is not recyclable with cardboard since the food waste can contaminate a recycling load? If only half the box is greasy, you can tear the clean part away and include it in your recycling; half a box is better than none when you recycle! If you have half-full bottles of water, soda or juice, empty the leftover contents onto the lawn before recycling. The liquids will filter through the soil and safely re-enter the water stream, and the recycling load will weigh less when it's collected.
