Starting Earth Day, April 22, San Francisco residents will be able to dump more plastic items into their recycling bins. Almost all types of plastic, including buckets, disposal utensils and see through plastic cups and take out containers will be accepted. The only plastic items that are not included are bags, film wrap, bubble wrap and any polysytrene. Bags and film are not included because those items usually get tangled in the recycling equipment.
