Recycling - #2 Natural Plastic

Plastics No. 2 Natural

What’s accepted:

Milk jugs, rinsed

Water and juice jugs

What’s not accepted:

Milk cartons

Nos. 1, 3-7 plastics

What you need to know:

No. 2 Natural has a grayish clear look to it.

If it’s a gallon jug and it has that translucent surface and it says No. 2 on the bottom, it’s probably OK.

The lids can stay on.

Why only milk jugs?

Some products come in No. 2 natural, such as some brands of window-washer fluid, but other manufacturers of window-washer fluid use different types of plastic. This inconsistency makes it hard to accept other products that are No. 2 natural.
