Did you know that you are supposed to keep the caps on your plastic bottles when you recycle?
I’ve always thought of myself as an informed recycler, but did not know this until I went on a tour of the Waste Management Recycling Facility. If you don’t keep the caps on the bottle, it falls into the wrong section of the recycling line. This is just one of the many things I learned on the tour. The sheer volume of trash was humbling, but it’s good to know that it will not make its way to the landfill.
While I was there, I also learned that Target Corporation is implementing a recycling icon program on all of their private label products so that the consumer can easily see how to recycle each product. This is a great trend in the industry that I think we’ll see more of in the future as other companies follow suit. If this is a trend that you would like to implement, I can help. Or, if you are a manufacturer that needs help with the labeling and packaging of your product, I can help with that, too.
