“Dear PoPville,

I am trying to be better about my consumption of plastic, but have been having a hard time deciphering DC’s recycling laws and was wondering if the PoPville community could help me out. I read on the DOEE website that since styrofoam has been banned, all food containers must be recyclable or compostable. New regulations mandate organizations that sell or serve food or beverages in the District to exclusively use recyclable or compostable food service products. Are these containers still recyclable when they are soiled? Are all plastic food containers recyclable (such as plastic clamshells)? According to this chart, it seems like not all food service containers can be recycled. I have reached out to the DOEE but haven’t heard back.”
