 Plastic labels on containers


Put plastic container labels into the black cart as garbage.

Special instructions

  • Cut off plastic labels from plastic containers, glass jars and food cans and put the label in the garbage.

Why can't plastic labels be recycled?

Plastic labels are made of a rigid, non-stretchy type of plastic that is not acceptable for recycling. To prevent contaminating the other recyclables, make sure to remove these labels from your containers before recycling the containers.
