Recycling has become second nature to so many of us that we forget how much of a difference we're really making.

Recycling preserves our natural resources, conserves energy, prevents pollution and protects our environment.

We're happy to report that you are doing a great job recycling in Palm Beach County. To all of you who participate in our program - thank you.  For those who don't and for those who would like to learn more, you have come to the right place.

To all of you who have asked about caps on plastic bottles, here is the scoop! Preferably, the caps should be removed and thrown in the garbage – they are a different type of plastic than the container itself and too small to be recycled by themselves. However, contrary to popular myth, if the caps are left on, the plastic bottles are still recycled! The cap is removed by the mill during the recycling process.

Keep those recyclables coming!
