Event recycling container

It’s the season of graduations, family reunions and other big get-togethers. Typically these events include plenty of food and beverages – beverages often served in bottles or cans. So when you’re planning your party, add one more item to your check list – event recycling containers.
It’s pretty easy to put another container for bottles and cans next to the trash. But just because you put it out, doesn’t mean that your guests will know to use it. So I have a few tips:
Remember to empty any bags of bottles and cans into your recycling cart. Bags get caught on machinery at the sorting facility. And opaque bags often are tossed in the trash unopened. You don’t want to put out recycling containers only to see the material end up in the garbage.
