Just because you want it to be recyclable, doesn't mean it is!
We've all been there! You toss something that you hope is recyclable, cross your fingers, and hope for the best! While typically done with the best of intentions, recycling items that may not be recyclable actually does a lot more harm than good!
Over 25% of items that are found in recycling containers don't belong there, and that can cause a lot of problems, including completely shutting down local recycling centers.
Always make sure that what you're recycling is clean and accepted by your city center, or better yet, find a way to reuse the item yourself!
