Container Labels Make Recycling Life Easier 5

By Recyclebank |
Whether you’re hosting an event or just trying to get everyone at home to dispose of items responsibly, these labels will make it easier than ever!

The easiest way to ensure that the right disposables end up in the right container is to clearly mark your containers. After downloading these labels and giving them a quick snip of the scissors, you can be confident that family, friends, and other guests will have no problem figuring out where to dispose of containers, scraps, and other items. If, and when, you dispose of these labels, be sure to recycle them too.

    I noticed on your Web site that #6 plastic is listed as accepted. Is that correct now?

    Our middle school has large containers that are labeled for specific materials that can be recycled. This has been very helpful. Yes, labels are very useful when it comes to recycling.

    I put my junk mail in recycle bin. Is that supposed to go in compost?

      I don't think so. I recycle my junk mail. My local center has a container for newspapers, magazines and junk mail.

    It would be neat if someone like Kashi would print one of these label images on the inside of every cereal box, so we could cut it open and re-purpose it as a sign for our bins.
