Does a recyclable item necessarily have the recycle logo on it?

    Not always. Shopping bags (paper or plastic) don’t always have the logo on them, it depends on what brand of bag it is.

    Conversely, there are a lot of things that HAVE recycling logos on them that are not practically recyclable for the average person. Plastics are numbered 1-7, but most recycling centers will only accept #1 and #2 (Polyethylene). (#4 is low density polyethylene, which includes things like plastic shopping bags)
    The other numbers are polypropylene and polystyrene are not commonly accepted at most centers.
