Accepted vs. Unaccepted Materials  (Printable List)

If you’re wondering whether our plastic recycling services can accept a specific material please see below. In summary, if the material does not stretch and you cannot poke your finger through it, we cannot recycle it. Moreover, we do not accept hard or crinkly material. A majority of what we recycle is #2 and #4 material. Lastly, all plastic must be clean, dry, and free of food residue.
