    Make sure you check your recycle hauler as to whether or not you can put in plastic cups, because in some counties, they have very specific things that can be recycled. Whole Foods has a GIMME 5 program where they collect #5 plastics and most fast food plastic cups are made of this polypropolene but again check to make sure. When in doubt, throw it out!

    I am still unsure about recycling things that are otherwise recyclable, but have the seemingly impossible-to-remove sticky labels on them. I believe that for recyclable metal cans that may not be a problem, but what about when they are on recyclable plastics or glass?

    Contact Lens cases. A new one comes in the box with the solution. I have tons of them in the house!

    Recycling various plastic hangers? Thrifts stores don't want them.

      I was able to give my unwanted plastic hangers to my alterations lady. She was delighted to get them!

    Are photographs recyclable glossy, matte, textured?

      No, they won't break down in the paper making process. Unfortunately, garbage. Or re-purpose them and make greeting cards.
