Are tofu containers recyclable? Yes.

Is it, or isn't it accepted in our expanded plastics recycling program? In this case, the object of our affections here in the Division of Solid Waste Services office was... a tofu container!

We learned that, unlike our clamshell container, this tofu container is accepted in our new program.

For the curious -- yes, we count ourselves among them! -- this white container was stamped with #2, which is high-density polyethylene or HDPE.
