LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The holidays are over and you have probably noticed a big by-product of those celebrations is trash.
To save some stuff from the landfill you need to know which items are recyclable and which ones are not.
For instance, what can you recycle from toys that were under the tree?
Recycling Manager Ken Prue explained, "Pretty much the entire packaging because you have the paperboard container, the hard plastic item, that's all recyclable. So you may have a few little twist ties, or zip ties throw those in the trash but probably 99 percent or so would be recyclable."
Rigid plastics, food tubs and trays, even soup and juice boxes thrown away can have a second life through recycling.
