A good way to access a list of what materials can be recycled in a particular area is to visit the city’s waste management site. For example, in the services section of Seattle.gov, residents of Seattle can access a complete list of what can be recycled in their area. For those who want to recycle items that are not accepted by their city, 1-800-RECYCLE is a valuable resource. This service allows users to find recyclers for specific items in their ZIP code. An online version is available on RecycleNation.com.
