Recycling

I'm trying to add a note on cans for recyclable waste in our office. I found the verb "reciclar," so I'd either like to write "Please Recycle" or something to the effect of "for recyclable materials only."

Any help would be greatly appreicated.

Muchisimas.

Look at this lesson to see how to write international characters.

Thanks very much for the information. Please pardon my poor vocabulary choice. My brothers speak Spanish fluently and have shortened "Muchisimas Gracias" to just "Muchisimas," so I used it out of (a bad) habit. Also, I'm not aware of how to type a stress mark or tilde or other punctation used in Spanish and not English. Is that something anyone can do, or does it require special software? I work in Windows Explorer.

Muchisimas gracias!

The following would do the trick:

  • Por favor, sólo material de reciclaje.
  • Sólo material de reciclaje, ¡Gracias!
  • Ayúdanos a reciclar, ¡Gracias!

The first one is kinda cold, the others more colloquial.

One more thing (I know you didn't ask, but I'm a teacher, you know'), just "Muchisimas" does not mean anything. If you want to say "thank you very much", then say "Muchísimas gracias" (note the stress mark).

Pienso que 'Solamente para materiales reciclables' = for recyclable materials only.
