Recycling in your home isn't restricted to the kitchen! Do your part in every room of the house.
- Tissue box
- Shampoo bottles (some recycled plastics become car parts, reusable kitchenware and more)
- Soap boxes
- Toilet paper roll
- Food boxes
- Food cans (steel is continuously recyclable. When recycled it can become a bike, a bridge or back to a can again!)
- Milk jug
- Soda cans (today's aluminum cans have about 68% recycled content)
- EXTRA CREDIT: Plastic bags and wrap - Recyclable yes, just not in your curbside bin. Take to a retailer near you.
The average American generates 4.4 pounds of trash and recyclables per day that adds up to 250 million tons per year in the U.S.
