Even More Plastics Now Recyclable at Lansdowne

According to the Lansdowne Borough website, the borough is now collecting even more plastic materials for recycling. Acceptable recyclables now include #1, #2, #4, #5, and #7 plastics. Only #3 and #6 materials are not acceptable. That means you can now include bread bags, sandwich bags, margarine tubs, straws, yogurt containers, reusable food storage containers, microwaveable and disposable take-away containers, disposable cups, and baby bottles in with your recyclables. If you’re not sure, check the symbol.
