Four Plastics You Should Consider Recycling
By Global Enviromental Services
Connecticut residents looking to go green should strongly consider curbside
recycling as a way to help protect their local environment. Curbside recycling is a cheap way
to aid in the preservation of natural resources with minimal effort. Here are
several common misconceptions that residents have about recycling in Connecticut.
Rinse Containers Before Recycling
 
Commonly recycled food and drink containers such as soda cans, canned
vegetables, tomato sauce and others should be rinsed, removing all debris before placing the container in your recycling bin. Rinsing your glass, metal and plastic food containers will aid in keeping your bin free of bugs and unpleasant smells.
 
Determine Local Recycling Service Policies
 
Not every recycling service has the same policies as another town. In most
instances, communities that feature curbside recycling pick-up often have their
own unique policies. It is important to check with your local recycling service
to find out what is or is not on the approved item list. For communities that do
not feature curbside pick-up, but do have a recycling center, make sure you
understand what is or is not accepted before you take your recyclables to the
center. In addition, some collection services use single-stream recycling,
therefore, you do not need to separate paper, glass, plastic, or cardboard recyclables.
 
Recycling May Be Included In Your Local Taxes
 
Many people worry that recycling is an added expense to their monthly bills.
In fact, many cities and townships in Connecticut provide curbside recycling
services free of charge in conjunction with rubbish pick-up. Call your local
government services department to find out your cities' recycling policies.
 
Recycling Can Save Your Household And Business Money
 
For consumers, recycling can lead to long-term savings. Not only should you
recycle at home, but also regular use of recyclable containers when shopping can
help local stores keep costs down. In addition, some communities have collection
centers that will pay you for your recycled metal containers and packaging.
 
Key Takeaways:
  • Remember to rinse your recyclable containers before putting them in the
    bin.
  • Check with your local recycling center to understand their policies.
  • Check with your city about free pick-up.
  • Keep in mind that recycling saves you money, in the long run.
