What Can You Recycle In Your Kitchen?

recycling service trumbull ct | recycling service monroe ct | Residential Waste SystemsWhether you love to cook or you’re just spending time with the family — the kitchen is truly the heart of the home.  With all of the time that we spend in the kitchen, we also tend to produce a lot of waste. Don’t overlook these kitchen essentials when putting out your recycling.

Kitchen Recycling:

  • Canned Goods – Canned foods like vegetables, beans, and soups can definitely be recycled!
  • Soda Bottles – Don’t forget to recycle your 2-liter soda bottles. Any plastic with a recycling symbol on the bottom can be placed in the recycling bin.
  • Milk Cartons – Milk is a kitchen staple. You can recycle both milk cartons and plastic milk containers.
  • Orange Juice Cartons – Like milk cartons, both plastic and cardboard orange juice (or any type of juice) containers can be recycled.
  • Soda Cans – Individual soda cans should also be recycled.
  • Pickle Jars – Glass jars that hold condiments, like pickles, can also be recycled.
  • Mayonnaise Jars – Rinse out your mayonnaise jars before placing them in the recycling bin.
  • Aluminum Foil – Aluminum foil, like aluminum cans, can definitely be recycled! Just make sure that there is no grease left over on the foil.
  • Soap Containers – The plastic soap containers that you place next to the kitchen sink can also be recycled when they are empty.

If you’re not sure if something in your kitchen can be recycled, check the container for a recycling symbol. Most items that can be recycled here in the Monroe and Trumbull, CT areas will have a recycling symbol on it. Remember that drinking glasses, light bulbs, plastic kitchen bags, and pizza boxes can not be recycled. Place those items with your regular garbage pickup, instead.
