Recycling News that May Astonish You
Attending a CENYC volunteer outreach meeting, I found out, to my astonishment, that not all #1 and #2 plastics can be recycled - only bottles and jugs with a small neck. That means that your strawberry containers, and starbucks plastic cups, and plastic egg cartons all with #1 and #2 are NOT recyclable! The good news is that Park Slope Food Coop does have collection days for plastics that are not taken through curbside service so keep your eyes out for those opportunities.
