recyclable food containers
i have heard that the kind of paper containers that hold milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, sour cream and ice cream are NOT recyclable because they contain some kind of wax coating. can any one confirm this?? and does anyone know: are egg cartons recyclable (same issue i suppose)?
Depends on your city. Every place is different as to whether they will accept items for recycling. I have friends that live in Broomfield, Colorado (suburb of Denver) and their city doesn't even offer recycling (or trash pickup). Each household contracts individually with a company for trash/recycling pickup. So, in their own neighborhood, what is and is not "recyclable" would all depend on which company you chose and what that company says they recycle.
