Ice Packs (Disposable)
Put disposable ice packs (plastic, filled with a gooey substance, when unfrozen) in the gray landfill cart. If they are leaking, use a plastic bag to contain the chemical and put in the landfill.
For short periods, freeze water in recyclable plastic containers. Use in an insulated bag, cooler or container to keep-in the cold.
These are a multiple material item (e.g. plastic & some liquid chemical), so not practically recyclable.
