Video: Don’t Recycle PPE

Recycled materials are key for everything from making new products to boxes to ship products and other essential supplies for the everyday needs of hospitals, grocery stores, pharmacies and American homes. There are critical needs for all raw materials in the manufacturing supply chain, especially paper and cardboard.

EPA encourages households to do their part – and recycle more and recycle right. Keep gloves, masks, other PPE out of recycling bins. Do not litter these items either and instead bag these items and dispose of them properly by following local and Center for Disease Control guidelines.
