Until this week, the Fort Wayne recycling program only recycled PETE (#1) and HDPE (#2) plastics: basically, just milk jugs and soda bottles. Starting this week, plastics with resin identification code 1-7 are all recyclable. This is good news since polypropylene (#5) packaging is so common. Instead of a two-bin system, it is now a 1-bin system, so all the people who claim sorting as a reason for not recycling are out of excuses. Hopefully, this will improve Fort Wayne’s low recycling rate. For more info, see the Fort Wayne recycling page.
