Plastic Disposal Flow Chart

This infographic guides individuals through a yes/no flow chart to support them in the process of deciding which disposal bin to put their packaging or their parts in. The flowchart highlights the importance of reading the resin identification code before putting plastics into the blue bin and looking for the compostable labels before putting what may appear to be a biodegradable product into the compost bin. The flow chart also guides individuals through the importance of separating plastics (and plastic parts) and identifying if a plastic is broken to ensure the plastics that are recyclable go into the blue bin and those that are not go into the gray bin. Packaging disposal can be messy, but by taking a few extra moments to determine the right bin for waste we are contributing to a more efficient waste disposal system.
