If you enjoy a cold beer with a lime and you leave the lime inside the empty bottle, can you still recycle the bottle? When it comes to small food waste in your recyclables, something like a lime wedge is totally fine. In the recycling process, glass bottles are collected, crushed and melted; any residual waste (limes, paper labels, caps) are sorted out or incinerated. So go ahead and enjoy your Corona with lime, and be sure to recycle the bottle when you're done.
