    All plastic bottles can be recycled, from water bottles to salad dressing, so put all of them in your recycling container. It is not just newspapers that you can recycle at home. Also, recycle wrapping paper, envelopes, birthday cards and phone books. Birthday cards? Interesting make it a great day everyone.
