    I know most to-go coffee *cups* can’t be recycled - what about the lids? I’d also like to know more about what types of plastic bags can be recycled in the bins at my local grocery store? I’ve learned (from reading on your app in the past - thank you! that most food freezer bags (like vegetables, etc) are NOT recyclable, and I know they accept clean plastic grocery bags and dry cleaning bags. What about bread bags? Plastic wrapping (outer and inner) from toilet paper? Is there any way to recycle the plastic packaging around a case of canned drinks, such as soda? What about the thin stuffed plastic used to hold multiple bottles of product together, like when you buy it at Costco? Glass jars are recyclable - what about the metal lids?

    Thank you so much for this - I don’t know of another resource like your app and it’s really useful!!!

      As I understand it, the wrapper that comes around cases of toilet paper are recyclable, and bread bags. Those flimsy plastic bags you get for weighing your produce, they can be recycled too. I believe the wrap around for cases of soda can be recycled. I keep a box in the basement for metals, like the metal lids on jars, and I take them maybe once a year to a metal scrapper nearby. Good work, Christina!

    Coffee cups! I'm not always sure if they can be recycled or if they are lined with plastic

    Are teabag wrappers recyclable? I mean many teabags now come in individual paper wrappers. Are they paper (they seem to be foil lined) and can they be recycled?
