Paper and cardboard products, such as juice cartons, milk cartons, newspapers, magazines, and phone books can be placed in your recycling trash bin. Glass products such as bottles, mirrors, and jars may be included, along with metal products such as drink cans, aluminum foil, and pots and pans. Different municipalities have different rules regarding which items they will accept for recycling, so get in touch with your local trash pickup company to see what the guidelines are in your area....Read More

You can also recycle metal cans and pretty much anything glass. You probably shouldn't recycle anything dirty, especially if it has food stuck on it....Read More
