  • do you have a list of what kinds of plastics they accept? then you compare it to the number on the bottom of the cup (and the lid). not all places recycle all the numbers of plastic....for me they do, but i know other places won't accept certain numbers.

  • What numbers do your recycling center accept?? There should be a triangle made with arrows on the bottom of the cup and if the number in the center is accepted at your center - sure you can recycle them. Otherwise, nope.

  • Depends on what's recycled in your community. Does it have a triangle with a number in it. You can ask your city, county, etc, whoever picks up if they recycle that.
