When it comes to recycling, things aren't as straight forward as we may think. It can be hard to determine whether something should be thrown into that blue bin or not. We may not think it's a big deal if we accidentally recycle something that shouldn't be but it actually can cause a lot of issues. However - that is no reason to skip out on recycling altogether. Analiese Smith is with Waukesha County Recycling, and she joins us to help figure out what really belongs in that blue bin.
