Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to take the labels off?

No, most labels do not need to be removed. When the recyclables are cleaned they are generally immersed in water for an extended period of time, this process removes any labels which float to the top and are removed. However some plastic bottles have plastic labels that encase the whole bottle and these should be removed because they can not be washed off.
