This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

Plastic cages recyle

The plastic cages are recyclable. They are a #5 on the recycling scale
The most frequently recycled plastics are #1 and #2 bottles. Other plastic items marked #3 through #7 - like butter tubs, single-use cups, video tapes/cassettes - can occasionally be recycled. These types of plastics are sometimes included in curbside collection. If your service provider does not currently accept these materials, some recycling centers in Minnesota do accept them via drop-off if you separate them by code. For instance, the City of Coon Rapids recycling facility accepts #1, #2, #4, #5 and #6 plastics.
Check with your local service provider to see what types of plastics they accept, and keep an eye out for special plastics collection events, such as garden plastic collections (seedling trays, pots, hanging baskets, etc.) at garden centers/nurseries each summer.
