Changes coming for #1-7 plastics recycling
I didn't blog about this news when it came out last month because I figured you all would know about it already, but then I thought I better mention it just in case: Waste Management and Allied Waste are both going to start accepting a wider variety of plastics for recycling curbside starting this January. Both were waiting to make announcements, but the story got leaked to the Star Tribune. Read the story here. The reporter got some facts wrong: neither recycler will be taking garden hoses! Allied will take #1-7 and Waste will take #1-5.
