Personal Care Bottles


If rigid, empty and place in blue recycling cart. OK to leave the plastic cap screwed on the bottle. Place very flexible plastic containers, and containers under two inches in the grey landfill cart.


Avoid buying personal care products by using bulk refill stations, making your own or purchase that use no packaging or paper packaging which can be composted.


A survey of over 2,300 Americans showed that the average adult uses nine personal care products each day. Studies show that personal care products used indoors contribute to poor indoor air quality, which is a serious health risk.
