EXPANDED RECYCLING FOR PLASTICS

The next you see a member of Sustainable Tallahassee, tell them "thank you."

Effective immediately, all plastic containers that hold less than three gallons can be recycled, including butter tubs, yogurt cups and produce baskets!

Of course, containers that have held automotive fluid, pesticides or other hazardous materials can't be added to your household recycling.  But, they can be collected through the existing City and County recycle collection programs. 
 
Sustainable Tallahassee, a citizen-led initiative established through the Knight Creative Communities Institute, appointed a Recycle Sub Committee of citizens, business reps and staff from the City and County. The group worked with the companies that receive plastics from the Tallahassee / Leon County area to significantly expand the plastic materials that can be received.

If you are looking for a Sustainable Tallahassee member, meet some at the upcoming Green Drinks, Wednesday, June 29th beginning at 5:45 PM at Midtown's 5ht Avenue Taproom, 1122 Thomasville Road.
