Question DetailsAsked on 6/17/2011

What can I recycle?

I’m confused on what I can recycle and what I can’t – do the numbers matter? What plastics can be used in the microwave and which give off toxins?

    For a comprehensive list of recycling options for a broad range of materials, answers and frequently asked question, visit Keep Indianapolis Beautiful. Although I couldn't find specific information on which kinds of plastics produce toxins when used in a microwave oven, I'd suggest erring on the side of caution and never using a plastic container in the microwave unless it's specifically labeled for microwave use.
