    My recycling center no longer takes misc plastics. So now I'm only recycling plastic water/soda bottles, aluminum and glass. I feel bad throwing other plastics in the trash.

    I would suggest a different follow-up action for your members, since newspapers are becoming obsolete, and mixed paper has very little value currently. In our community, we have a drop-off bin for separated out white office paper (including shredded white office paper). This material still has value and can even be recycled domestically. I'm writing this on 11/30/19...who knows what the market will do at any point in the future :(
