Important Recycling Service Terms Recycling services collect materials like metal, glass, paper, and plastic that can be broken down and reused. If you are looking to reduce the amount of waste your home or business produces, the following are some important recycling terms to know.
Aerosol cans: These can usually be recycled with other cans, as long as you pull off the plastic cap and empty the canister completely.
