Did you know?
·        Everyday packaging accounts for approximately 1/3 of all landfill waste.
·        Most community recyclers only take items made from materials that are easily recognized – such as soda and water bottles.
·        Cosmetic and toiletry bottles, tubes, caps and jars are among those items not easily recognized and therefore not often recycled.

On Thursday, April 2nd you can help change that
