Curbside Recycling

Our community has offered curbside recycling for perhaps 15 years. I have tried to recycle whenever possible. I even took my recyclables to the recycling center in the days before we were provided bins! I have been known to pull plastic containers out of our wastebasket to recycle them. Our communities earn money for all the materials that are recycled. So you help reduce the amount of materials that end up in landfills and you financially benefit your community! Seems like a win-win situation. But then it appears that industrial, commercial, and retail organizations are not participating in any form of recycling. You sometimes see stores throwing away all the cardboard and packing material - all mixed together. One would think they could find a way to separate the different wastes and make sure they get recycled? Perhaps if enough people ask the question, they will take action.
