AEC logoArea recycling enthusiasts should be quite happy with this announcement by the Alabama Environmental Center.  Beginning this past Monday they are now accepting all plastics, #1-7.

Previously the plastics had to have a screw-on lid, so you couldn’t take in frozen entree trays, most kitty litter bins and things like that because different processes were required to recycle them.

Just in case you need a reminder about what items are accepted at the drop-off center in downtown Birmingham, click here to see the list. You can also check out this page to learn more about Birmingham’s current curbside program or here to watch a video explaining your options.
