    Do we need to remove labels from bottles and jars (glass and plastic)? The page on cleaning recyclables doesn’t mention labels.

      Hi Phil,

      Great questions. Empty and rinsed plastic milk cartons are recyclable but unfortunately, the paper ones would be considered garbage.

      Thanks for reaching out,
