How do I know a plastic's number?

You will find on most plastic products a small triangular recycle symbol. Usually in the center of the symbol you will find a number. That number tells you whether or not it may be recycled by certain recycling plants. The Garbage Man can accept numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. So if you have a plastic product with one of those numbers on it, don't throw it away - recycle it!
