Recycling just got easier!

I have to admit, when I have to separate everything out, I am a horrible recycler. In fact, to be honest, I don't do it at all. I don't have room in my kitchen for all the different containers to separate it all out and I don't have the time or patience for it. The only things I put aside are the bottles I've paid deposit on. I'm horribly un-green, I know.

But recently the recycling system in my town changed. They mailed us this nifty little pamphlet that tells you exactly what you can and cannot recycle. And even better, there is no separating involved! You can throw it all in together, it's GREAT! So, now I have 1 container in my kitchen, and I tacked the pamphlet up above it. We have become recycling fools!

I certainly wouldn't want the job of the person who has to sort through it all, but it has definitely gotten us to participate.

Well my dear you better not move to Okinawa. The island is so small and so highly populated that recycling is the law here and we have to sort our trash. We have two different pamphlets on how to sort our trash and it was very confusing in the beginning. Giff calls me the "recycling nazi" though so of course I was all about it. I'm glad to hear you're recycling now! Keep it up!
