The recycling truck just visited our cove. Recycling sounds like such a good thing to do. Furniture, playground surfaces, paper and so much more can be made from our trash. The next time you are carefully sorting and cleaning your recyclables, consider the following. After the trash service picks up your recyclables, they take them to a large, new facility where employees further sort your trash. Then, the materials are all buried in a landfill just like all the unsorted, nasty trash. They do catalog where the different materials are buried just in case they ever need to dig them up and use them. Guess how many times they have dug up recyclables since this expensive program was started many years ago? I think somebody missed the whole point of recycling.
