In our city we are allowed to put #1 and #2 recyclable items in our bins that the city picks up (when it comes to plastics). No 5’s or others. So what about lids??? I’ve hardly ever notice a lid to have a triangle number on it, so I just throw them away, but I just feel like it totally defeats the purpose of recycling in the first place if I’m still throwing stuff in the regular trash!!
We can take non #1 or #2 items to our local recycle center (I don’t even know where it is actually), and I’ve thought about just collecting up all my lids, along with the massive kitty litter containers that are #5 and taking it all, but the lids had me stumped.
What do you do with your lids?
