As of August 1, the City is now accepting all plastic containers!
You’ve been recycling plastic containers marked:
#1: Soda, water bottles

Now you can add:
#3: Rigid plastic containers and juice bottles
#4: Plastic tubs and lids from butter, margarine or similar products
#5: Yogurt containers and deli trays
#6: Plastic cups, plates and to-go containers
#7: Many mixed plastic containers and plastic products
These are just some examples of what you can recycle, so look for the number to make sure. For more information on what can and cannot be recycled, go to the city website at http://philadelphiastreets.com/recycling.aspx.
