Busting Bin Blues: Smart Sort Solutions for Common Recycling Mistakes

We’ve all been there. You stand at the overflowing recycling bin, a questionable yogurt container in hand, and a sinking feeling washes over you. Is it recyclable? Which bin goes it in? Fear not, fellow recyclers! Smart Sort is here to banish your bin blues and transform those recycling woes into eco-victories.

Let’s tackle some of the most frequent recycling blunders that can leave you feeling confused and frustrated. That greasy pizza box or plastic-lined coffee cup might seem vaguely recyclable, but wishful thinking contaminates recycling loads. Smart Sort takes the guesswork out by clearly indicating what materials are accepted in your area’s program. Plastic bags can wreak havoc on recycling machinery. Smart Sort programs typically don’t accept them in the recycling bin. Look for designated plastic bag drop-off locations or opt for reusable bags when shopping.
