Newark: Plastic recycling — Knowing the code is key

Published Monday March 28

Plastic recycling seems easy — anything with the chasing arrows recycle symbol with a number in it means it can be recycled, and if there is no symbol it cannot be recycled, right? Not fortunately no.

The recycle symbol does not signify whether or not an item belongs in the recycle bin. For plastic recycling in particular, the plastic identification code (three chasing arrows with the number 1 to 7) informs consumers and the sorting facility what gentle of plastic it is made out of — and does not indicate its recyclability.

For tips about what can be composted or recycled in Newark, visit site.republicservices.com/site/alameda-county /en/pages/newark.aspx.
