Have you noticed a change to your curbside recycling program? Many communities are no longer accepting recyclables like glass and plastics in their program. The reason is pretty simple: These recyclables are too contaminated and are worthless to recyclers. And items such as glass shatter and contaminate valuable recyclables like cardboard. The lesson here is pretty simple: Only put what is recyclable in the bin, make sure it’s clean, and when in doubt about something, toss it away.
