Have you ever gotten credit card solicitation in the mail that feels like it has a new card in it, but when you open it, it's just a fake plastic card that reads "YOUR NAME" instead? While the envelope and letter that made up this junk mail can be recycled, that plastic card can't. Be sure to remove it from the package and throw it away. By tossing the fake credit card into the recycling bin with your junk mail, you risk contaminating a whole load. Toss it in the trash and then recycle the rest.
