The "facilities" lag behind the materials

Posted:     Post subject: The "facilities" lag behind the materials

The trouble with recycling is that only a small fraction of recyclable materials are actually accepted by recycling centers. Case in point: my local center. Under "cardboard," their website specifies corrugated only, no milk cartons or cereal boxes. Under "plastic," they specify no tubs.

Okay, but I go through a lot of cold cereal and soymilk. I go through a lot of hummus, and so far, I have only ever seen hummus sold in plastic tubs.

In the last town I lived in, I did a little "protest" of sorts: since my apartment complex did not have recyclables pickup, I had to take my recyclables to the recycling center myself. So I would save up hummus tubs until I had a lot of them, then go on the weekend, when the collection bins were unattended. Into the bins would go the tubs -- if they refuse to take perfectly good recyclables, let them take the responsibility for sending them to the landfill. I did my part.

Live was I ere I saw evil.
