Decoding Recycling Symbols
Have you ever looked at objects you're disposing of for a recycling symbol, then think "What does this mean again?" This is where The Daily Green's guide comes in. Not just the typical guide categorizing typical items for each group, the article also includes how likely each group is to be picked up by your local recycling companies, what they'll be recycled into, and the material's properties.
This could be useful the next time you're looking at the bottom of your deli-bought beverage.
