More and more of today’s products are being manufactured with recycled content. Common household items that contain recycled materials include the following:

  • Newspapers and paper towels
  • Aluminum, plastic, and glass soft drink containers
  • Steel cans
  • Plastic laundry detergent bottles

Recycled materials are also used in new ways such as recovered glass in asphalt to pave roads or recovered plastic in carpeting and park benches.
