Each trash bin had either a bottle or paper that they had to look for, but only some of them were marked with the race logo. If a team found one of the items but it was not marked, they had to properly recycle them in one of the recycling bins, and put the trash back in their original bin. Once the team found either the marked bottle or paper, they could exchange it for the next clue.
