Do you have selective recycling crews?
For plastics my street's crew seems oddly unreliable, things carrying the proper mark are often left...
I understand if it's only written confirmation, no visible arrow's, there's no time for reading with the schedule they have.
However clearly marked items got left so often and reminder cards left by them for approved items made me start taking all the plastics to the local tip.
So that's twice the fossil fuels burnt, sort of makes it pointless really
