Recycling with Roz!

Recycling with Roz  Karen Rozmus, Oak Park's Waste Reduction Manager shares tips on recycling including tips on plastic bottle caps and take-out containers in this 2 minute video.  Also, if you have additional questions, you can call Karen at 708-358-5700 or email her at We are big recyclers at my house, but I still have questions . . . like

  • Can waxed milk and juice containers be recycled? . . . especially the ones with the plastic caps built into them?
  • Regarding take-out containers -- since few are completely recyclable I know we should take our own containers, but does anyone really do that?  If so, how do you remember to take them?
  • What ideas do you have about reducing the packaging that we bring home in the first place??
