Do Not Recycle
Even though hard plastic clamshells are typically made from plastic #1, they are difficult to recycle because they are made through a different process. When combined, they contaminate the recycling and reduce its quality. Be sure to toss them in the garbage.
Ways to Reduce
Avoid Purchasing Non-Recyclables
Hard clamshell plastic cannot be recycled, so try to buy from brands that avoid this type of packaging.
