The following items should NOT be included in your recycling. It is safe to include them in the trash.
Styrofoam & plastic clamshells, takeout containers, and plastic utensils are convenient, but they cannot be recycled in a curbside recycling program. To avoid these items, consider bringing your own glass containers for restaurant leftovers. Encourage your favorite restaurants to switch to earth-friendly packaging.
These items require special handling and should NEVER be included in TRASH OR RECYCLING.
