It might be tempting to put that large, plastic slide or your kid's old ride-on toy in the curbside recycling cart... it's plastic, right? But no, large bulky plastic like children's toys, lawn furniture, buckets and other household items are not recyclable. They can't be brought to the Recycling Center.
Consider reusing these types of items or donating them. Before throwing away, you should contact your hauler for more details and to see if there is a charge for disposal.
