As long as the community is able to provide adequate recycling opportunities and accessibility, recycling should not be difficult for the consumer. Providing bins and visuals in the community will help residents know what can be recycled. It is now easier than ever. Many communities accept commingled recycling so the material no longer needs to be separated by the individual. Also don’t worry about removing labels and caps – they are removed by machines during the separation process.
Here is the National Recycling Coalition response:
- More people recycle than vote.
- Nearly 140 million Americans have access to curbside recycling programs. Even more Americans have access to drop-off centers.
