Speaking Of Recycling
Do you have recycling where you live and if you do, do you recycle? Every Wednesday a big blue truck comes rumbling down our street to pick up one small blue square recycle bin. That would be our house. Why do more people not recycle? Do they think when they get to a central location they just dump it with the regular garbage. I hope they don't do that anywhere because I think recycling is very important to the future of our younger generation. Do they not recycle because they think it's too much trouble? To me it's almost trouble free. I have my garbage can by the back door so I don't even have to get dressed to throw out garbage. On the other side of that is the recycle bin so I can just pitch plastic bottles, cans, and such over the can and into the recycle bin and straighten it up later if need be. I have a big box in the garage to put newspapers and magazines in. The papers I use some of under Susie's litter box in the garage when she sleeps in there in winter. When I accumlate too many I put a stack of them in the recycle bin. John's sister and brother-in-law made fun of me for having plastic bags in a gift bag behind the office door. They thought I was hoarding them so they would giggle and ask if they could borrow one of my plastic bags. Actually when I get several bags full of bags I take them on one of my trips to Walmart all tied up neatly. They provide a large wooden box right by the door I go in so it's no problem to dispose of them. I do wish someone would provide a list of things that can be recycled. (Note to self, I must do some research on that) because the city doesn't seem to know and the garbage company is from San Antonio or somewhere else other then our town. Seems I read some where the cans are supposed to have the labels torn off. I do say I don't waste a lot of water rinsing cans or bottles out because I feel at the price and lack of water that would be defeating the purpose. I do rinse them out with a minimum amount. You know what I even think recycling is kind of fun?
