Have you heard of "wish-cycling"? It's when someone is so passionate about recycling they toss items into the recycling bin "wishing" it was recyclable and hoping someone at the recycling facility can figure out if it can be recycled. While it's nice to have an optimistic viewpoint on recycling, this is actually more like downcycling. When questionable recyclables get tossed into the bin, it costs time and money for these items to be sorted out and tossed away. When in doubt, toss it out.
