Look on the bottom of the plastic container for a number inside a triangle. This number tells what kind of plastic the container is made of. #1 - 7 plastic containers are recyclable. Rinse out containers. Sort containers by plastics number. Flatten containers as much as possible and remove lids. Deposit the clean container into the correct drop-off compartment. Containers which once stored motor oil are not acceptable for recycling.
