    We found a local lady through Facebook who collects the soft and hard plastic lids that our local south Texas recyclers won't accept and takes them to Mexico where they use them to make posthecics. Seriously. But we are 7 miles from the border. This may not be practical in other parts of the US.

    I thought I was doing a *great* job until recently! I rinse/wash, check plastic numbers, use only paper (not plastic) to bag it all... Then I realized how many of my building neighbors are just throwing *everything* in the recycling bin! I’m trying to find a positive, encouraging way to educate my neighbors - and reduce contamination of my entire buildings recycling output. Does anyone have suggestions?

    Yes - I always rinse every plastic - metal container before putting in bin. I always make sure everything is clean. I agree every little bit helps.

    I recycle as much as possible. Every little bit helps.

    I have the "Go/No Go" poster by the recycle bin (even made ones for my kid's preschool and work before the waste companies came up with them). We've recycled for decades, in multiple states - so my family is hooked on it and just need reminders of the different rules of different recycle service providers.
