Consumers

Consumers play an important role in recycling. Local governments and recyclers depend on you to recycle the items that they want. Below are a couple of things that you can do to get involved:

Learn about your local recycling program

Every recycling program has unique rules about what it collects and how it is collected. This is based on the kinds of recycling facilities in the area and other local factors. While the How2Recycle Label provides guidance on recyclability, it is important to familiarize yourself with the specific instruction where you most frequently recycle.

Spread the word

Help others in your community learn about their recycling options. Share the information that you discover with friends, neighbors, and connections. Tell them about the How2Recycle Label.
