Four Things NOT to put in a Recycle Bin
Recycling in Georgia is single stream—no little bins and bags, it’s all put in together. Here’s what you cannot include:
- Food Waste and Liquids
They can contaminate the entire load of recyclables and cause it all to have to go in the trash.
- Tetrapak milk cartons
While they say they’re recyclable, they have nowhere to go in the common recycling stream
- Plastics that are labeled 3-7, like yogurt containers
Also, though they say they are recyclable, they don’t occur in enough quantity in the recycle stream to be easily recyclable
- Aluminum foil
Aluminum foil burns to ash when it’s put into the smelter, so it also can’t be recycled
