Mixed Materials cannot be recycled. A mixed material is an item that is made of two or more materials.

Chip bags are a mixed material. They are made of plastic and metallic film. 

Food cans like the one above are a mixed material. They are made of metal, paper, and plastic. 

Coat hangers are another example of a mixed material. They are usually metal and plastic or metal and wood. Do not put any type of coat hanger in your recycle cart.
