You know that triangle symbol you see on plastic? That doesn’t mean it’s recyclable. That’s just the manufacturer telling you what kind of resin it’s made of.
Jennifer Jarland is the Recycling Program Coordinator for Kane County. She says when recycling plastic, “You gotta stick to the bottles, tubs, jugs and jars only.”
Jarland says a lot of people are already trying to reduce, reuse, and recycle, but sometimes they make mistakes.
