It sounds like an environmental triumph; the ability to turn single-use food packaging into a soil amendment, a new form of energy, or some other usable thing. The reality is that in Clark County, replacing other single-use packaging with compostable packaging has the potential to create more harm than benefit.
During these free community events, skilled volunteers attempt to repair broken household items such as small appliances, clothing, tools, jewelry and bicycles. Last year volunteers successfully fixed 84% of items brought to Repair Clark County events and helped to reduce waste, conserve resources, and save money.
Plastic clamshells are very common in grocery stores and as take out food containers. They often have a hinged lid and are composed of a brittle, clear plastic that shatters into pieces during the sorting process. These containers do NOT belong in your mixed recycling. This material is a challenge to recycle and is not currently accepted by any known local recyclers. Consider buying products in packaging that you know is recyclable to reduce waste. Follow the link below to learn about other problem materials that should stay out of your recycling bin.
