Many are pretty picky. It’s not too uncommon for plastics recycling to be limited to #1 and #2 plastics in bottle form only. Others will take pretty much any kind of plastic.

It is simple to recycle and most of us do it. How can we make it easier? For one thing, it helps to know which bottles to recycle. Those of us who recycle know that not all of them are accepted by the centers. To minimize your collections and aggravations, check the bottle. There are codes on the bottles numbered one through seven that indicate whether that particular bottle can be recycled. Numbers one and two are the most common and easiest to recycle. Almost all centers accept them. It also helps to know that most centers do not collect the bottle caps. They, too, are coded with a number. The items that cannot be recycled at your closest facility can sometimes be given to your curbside avarecycling.com. You can call your city to find out what coded numbers they accept.

The first time that you charge your laptop the indicator may show that it is full after only fifteen minutes or so of charging. Although this is normal, it certainly does not mean that your battery is actually full. If this does occur, take out the battery and then put it back in, repeating the charging procedures. Then, without the laptop ac adapter plugged in, let the battery run completely out. Repeat this same procedure at least eight times over the next few days. Always be sure to give your battery a full overnight charge.
