When you say you recycle, what do you mean? Maybe you recycle cans. Maybe just bottles. Or, maybe you have a three-bin setup in the house and always take the extra step to sort your plastics from your paper.

No matter where you fall on the recycling spectrum, there may be some recycling opportunities that you miss simply because you don’t know the specifics on what can and can’t be recycled in your area.

If you want to up the ante on your recycling levels -- or just get in the game -- there’s a neat app that can help called iRecycle.

Created by Earth911, Inc., iRecycle provides more than 1 million ways to recycle over 300 different types of materials. The app is free and available for the iPhone, iPad and Android.

Our favorite part is the ability to search regional recycling capabilities by ZIP code, address or city. Recycling regulations differ widely from place to place, but this feature makes it a snap to quickly make a call on which bin your cottage cheese container belongs in.
