Clarification needed

This newsletter says plastics #3-7 are not acceptable for recycling (which by it itself is useless since most plastics have no #). On the other hand, when you go to the city's website, it appears to show the only unacceptable plastics for recycling are plastic bags. I would think plastics #3-7 (whatever they are) would include more than plastic bags?! This is confusing and clarification is needed.

We desperately need to add plastics beyond 1 and 2. The quantity of #5 bottles I toss into the garbage is appalling. I understand that glass does not garner a profit, but what about these other plastics?

#5 recycling

Whole Foods (at least the one in Hoover) now accepts #5 plastics for recycling.

Clarification about plastic bags

Are plastic bags that are labeled #2 accepted by Republic? It would be helpful if each resident was provided with a list of recycling items accepted by Republic rather than relying on a website.

This needs to be posted in What’s Happening in Homewood

Perhaps people will read it and quit putting the wrong items in our recycling bins.
