When that bottle of vino is empty, you can take one step to make recycling it just a little bit greener. According to the website Recyclebank.com, never leave the cork in the bottle when you toss it into the recycling bin. Recycling centers do not recycle them and since they are so small, they run the risk of jamming the machinery. And remember to take the time to remove the metal wrapping around the top of the bottle. It is recyclable, so just toss it into a metal can and place it in your recycling bin.
