Many of us are confused about recycling.  Is this orange juice container recyclable?  And which bin should it go into?

There is usually no straightforward answer.  Recycling guidelines vary based on where you live and what the standards are for your region.

Some companies are trying to make the guidelines clearer.  Such manufacturers as Costco, Best Buy and Microsoft are opting for Voluntary How2Recycle labels, to indicate the likelihood of the product being recyclable.
