Let's talk about Hopeful Recycling...
Hopeful recycling is putting something in your recycling bin hoping that it will be recycled, when in reality it is garbage. Being unsure as to whether something is truly recyclable curbside or not and just hoping that you are correct. Because you would rather at least try than throw something away that is recyclable, right!? Wrong!
When something is in the recycling bin that is not recyclable, it is known as a contaminant. It jams the machines, slows down the process, and can make whole loads of the recycling end up in the landfill.
How to avoid this? Learn exactly what you can and cannot recycle in your area.
When in doubt - look it up!
