    Yes, several cities do accept many different types of plastics. However, you must check with your hauler what is allowed in your city. Make sure to ask the same at least twice a year. Many recycle companies change their policy with the wind..mainly due to equipment.

    Several cities accept all plastic cups and containers curbside, even biodegradable.
