If you are not sure, don't recycle it.
 
  TIP 1:
Even a little contamination can hurt. Sort your recyclables before dropping them off and put only the right material into the bin.

TIP 2:
If it isn't in the bin, it's trash! Materials should never be left near the drop bins or on the ground. Please remember to take you trash away for proper disposal.
