Plastic Wide Mouth Container Accepts #5 plastics if not accepted by your curbside hauler. do not cut up your plastics as this makes it difficult for our team identify and sort #5s. Also, we ask that for items like yogurt cups that may have a “shrink sleeve” or paper label, that you remove the shrink sleeve or paper label before mailing. reuse a box and pack it densely, and if possible, ship by ground.
