Some specific recycling options:
Blue Bin: Not sure what you can recycle? Check the LA Bureau of Sanitation. You can recycle all clean plastic containers numbered 1-7, aluminum foil, wire hangers (please try and take them back to the dry-cleaner first), plastic grocery bags, dry-cleaning bags, and more!
E-Waste Recycling Centers in Los Angeles– where they accept old computers and electronics as well as household batteries, chemicals, and medications. Just drive up to their center and they will unload your car. It could not be easier!
