That is good news!

Our city has recently started accepting all plastics with numbers 1-7 and WOW!!! It sure has made a BIG impact in our trash vs recycling volume of waste! (They also accept glass and steel cans and aluminum cans, etc, but those haven't changed.)

We buy the least packaged items and reuse 90% of the glass food storage. It is the #5 plastic from cottage cheese, hummus, yogurt (sometimes), and other foods that has made such a big impact for us.

Our city just started accepting all plastics 1-7, too.

I still try to re-use #5 plastics as much as possible, though, because (I think) it's one of the safer plastics. We save the quart size yogurt containers, etc, for various uses...they make great craft storage for the kids and 'tupperware' for leftovers. But it sure is nice to be able to recycle them when we start to get too many.
