There are seven types of consumer plastic or resin- each has unique characteristics. A recycling symbol with or without a number doesn't necessarily indicate that an item is accepted for recycling. The numbers on plastic are an identification code communicating what type of plastic the item is made from. In Franklin County, the number of a plastic doesn't matter. Plastic bottles, jugs, tubs and some cups are accepted! Say goodbye to the days you had to read that tiny number!
