What numbers of plastic can I recycle?

RecyclingIn Seattle, we ignore the numbers on the plastic containers. They denote the type of plastic resin the container is made of, not its ability to be recycled. In Seattle, you can recycle the following plastic items: rigid food containers such as bottles, cups, take-out containers, tubs, jars, lids wider than 3 inches; plant pots; and bags, if they are bundled and tied together. Make sure everything is empty and clean before recycling it. Visit www.seattle.gov/util/lookitup to find more recyclable items.
