Plastics we can recycle at Kent County Recycling & Education Center:
Hard-sided (rigid) plastic containers including milk jugs, water bottles, laundry detergent jugs, coffee containers, yogurt cups, butter or margarine tubs, and more.
To recycle these items:
1. wash clean
2. put cap back on
3. toss in the recycling bin!
Caps are now recyclable as long as they’re attached to the container and labels are OK – you don’t need to remove them!
