Will it recycle? City floats guidelines

By Marjorie Isaacson

Recycling block captains received these tips from Shelli Bruno of the Chicago Department of Environment:

While you may think these paper-based items are recyclable, they actually belong in the trash:
• paper bags with foil lining (such as cookie bags)
• carbon copies
• candy bar wrappers
• metallic paper (such as yeast packets)
• used napkins
• manila envelopes lined with bubble wrap

And these items can be included in your Blue Cart:
• envelopes with plastic windows
• waxy cardboard beverage containers, such as orange juice and soy milk containers
