Is a "Flavor Fresh Steamer"(tm) recyclable?

Asked by Zaku (12046 points ) August 21st, 2011

I just tried a new type of frozen food, a Marie Calendar pasta which includes a plastic bowl and pasta strainer that one is to zap all together in a microwave.

The plastic is a soft translucent type, and I don’t see any recycling symbols anywhere. Does anyone know if it’s recyclable at all?

Check the bottom of the container for recyclable symbols. I just assume they are, and put them into my recycle bin after rinsing out.

@RocketGuy Probably the right move, but I didn’t see any symbols.

Theoretically, yes. However it depends on your area. In Park City, UT where we used to live, they recycled plastic bags of every description. In the areas we’ve lived since, I have not found a recycle facility that will do the same in the places I have lived since.
