Things from your refrigerator, you should recycle

Only in the United States, people make 76 million tons of waste every year. This is a serious amount of garbage. It is obvious that this cannot be prevented. But, it can be reduced. The only way we can achieve this is by recycling. There are many things in your refrigerator that you can recycle. All you need to do is to start recycling, today.

•    Produce bags can be thrown away on most grocery shops at entry drop-off bins. This is a much better alternative than to throw it away with ordinary garbage. 
•    Cartons have many applications. We use them for our juice, milk and etc. There are two types of them, refrigerated and shelf-stable. Both of them you can recycle. A good news is that the number of people who recycles them is increasing. You can be one of them. During the last year, the number of people who recycle cartons was increased 128%. This means that 40% of households in the United States recycle cartons.
•    Butter and yogurt tubs are made from plastic. It is a bit harder to recycle them, but it is possible. Now, a lot of communities are expanding their programs so recycling of these items will be available to you even more.
•    Salad dressing bottles can be thrown away in a curbside bin in most localities. They are usually made from thin glass or plastics. Just check that lids and caps can stay on bottles.
•    Berries are packed in plastic, molded fiber boxes or mesh plastic containers. All of them are recyclable. Just make sure that curbside programs accept all of them.
