HELP CONSERVE WATER while RECYCLING!
Posted on: 2012-07-20

You can conserve water and properly prepare containers for recycling by keeping these suggestions and tips in mind.

* Items for Blue Bag #2 (plastics, glass, cartons & metals) must be clean & dry.  Please remove food and liquid waste -- labels and glue residue do not need to be removed.

* A kitchen spatula can be used to remove most food from plastic containers and cans.

* Soiled paper towels and napkins can be reused to wipe containers out.

* Use the water in your sink (after doing dishes) to rinse recyclables -- no need to use clean water.

* Put recyclable containers in your dishwasher along with other dishes -- be sure to use a water and energy efficient dishwasher.

RE-THINK..... then RECYCLE!
