During the global pandemic, we are all using more personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves and face masks to do our part and stay healthy. But no matter what your PPE is made of, don't try to recycle it. It's not recyclable, and when it does make its way to a recycling facility, it has to be picked out manually by sanitation workers because gloves, elastic bands and other PPE get snagged in machinery, which can slow down the recycling process. Make sure your used PPE always goes in the trash, and don't forget to cut elastic bands to help protect wildlife.
