Do you think recycling at home is confusing, especially when you’re breaking down packaging that’s a mix of paperboard, plastic, metal and other materials?

A simple cross-out on the recycling symbol means toss it in the trash; a recycling symbol means it is recyclable. The label often comes with more instructions on whether to rinse, clean or simply toss the packaging right into the bin. Learn more at howtorecycle.info.
