How to Recycle #5 Plastics


Some recycle programs do not accept #5 plastics, which are things like yogurt containers or medicine bottles. Whole Foods Market’s Gimme 5 Recycling Program has set up bins in select stores (currently Boston and Cambridge locations) to collect these containers and send them to Preserve who in turn makes them into new items like toothbrushes. Containers can be collected and mailed to Preserve. Note that mailing will be at your expense. Mail to Preserve Gimme 5, 823 NYS Rte 13, Cortland, NY 13045.
