What you can recycle from your bathroom

Food and beverage containers, glass, newspapers and other paper items are commonly recycled in households across the nation. But outside the kitchen, living room or office, where many of these items are found, there are other areas where you can find unexpected opportunities to recycle – such as the bathroom.

Though 7 out of 10 Americans say they always or almost always recycle, only 1 in 5 consistently recycles bathroom items, according to a report commissioned by the Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Cos.

Here is some helpful information about which common bathroom items can be recycled:

•Plastic bottles marked No. 1 (PET) or No. 2 (HDPE) containing products such as shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, baby powder, face cleanser and body oil are recyclable.

•Plastics marked No. 4 (LDPE) and No. 5 (PP) are recyclable and accepted as part of the one-cart recycling program in Fort Wayne. The city also accepts items marked with No. 6 and No. 7.

•Paperboard items such as toilet paper rolls, cardboard boxes and cartons for things such as medicine, lotions, soap and bandages can all be recycled in most communities.
