One of the biggest problems for recycling is still food waste.
Putting food in a recycling cart can actually ruin your other recycling and make it un-recyclable.
As Texans change their habits and get ready to head back to school, we're reminding them that food waste doesn't belong in the recycling bin.
Paper is a valuable resource and many Texans already actively recycle it.
However, paper is easily ruined by liquids, food waste, yard waste, and other 'contamination' in the recycling stream.
Help protect our resources by making sure all recycling is always empty, clean and dry.
