Our first Ask Me Anything: Recycling Edition event was a hit! Tune in as our panel of recycling experts answer audience-submitted questions about recycling. From the basics (What is recycling contamination?), to the nitty-gritty (Can mayonnaise jars be recycled? Where do egg cartons go?). From whether or not our recyclables really ARE being recycled, the financial and environmental costs, and much, much more!
