Instructions

Put disposable ice packs (plastic, filled with a gooey substance, when unfrozen) in the gray cart. If they are leaking, use a plastic bag to contain the chemical and put in the landfill.

Alternatives

For short periods, freeze water in recyclable plastic containers. Use in an insulated bag, cooler or container to keep-in the cold.

Facts

These are a multiple material item (e.g. plastic & some liquid chemical), so not practically recyclable.
