I thought I would end the Surprising Recyclables era (for now) by returning to where it all began – Little Tikes. We have a couple of their toys, and the first one I checked yielded paydirt. Right there on the gray backboard I saw the resin identification code for plastic #2, which means the toy is made from high density polyethylene and therefore recyclable.

That’s great news for greenies like us who want to keep used items out of the landfill. Check your Little Tikes gear before tossing it – you might be able to take it to a Charleston County Recycling drop site. They are pretty good about designing products made from recyclable material, and I think that just rocks.

So, I feel like I’ve learned a lot by writing this column. I’ve learned about resin ID codes, symbol placement, and plastic usage. I’ve learned that sometimes I can identify a plastic by the sound it makes when struck. But most importantly, I’ve learned that so many household items are actually recyclable right here in Charleston County, so there’s no reason to throw away broken and worn-out stuff. If we can all keep thinking about the lifecycle of our belongings and adopt a cradle to cradle mentality, we can get that much closer to a sustainable future.

That’s all of this Surprising Recyclables mess for now, but on the lookout for a roundup post. And I promise to move on to something else!
