Are Takeout Containers Recyclable?

Blog

We love to order takeout food, especially nowadays with so many of us spending more time at home. But with all those orders come a lot of plastic bags, containers, utensils, etc. and not all of it can go into your recycling bin. 

Just because a takeout container has a recyclable symbol on it, don’t assume it's okay to recycle it. The acceptance of recyclable materials can vary from state to state and city to city. As a rule of thumb, the following materials are accepted no matter where you live: paper, cardboard, metal cans, and plastic containers labeled with a #1 or #2.
