Ever Heard Of Re-Cycling?

It drives me absolutely NUTS when there's a garbage and a blue re-cycling can next to each other, and countless idiotic fools still strut up to the garbage and toss in cans, plastic bottles, empty jugs.  
Chances are, I figure, they are the same people who cry all day about the "ozone!", and "trees!", and "emmissions!". Well wake up, grow a brain, and realize you're just as bad. It's 2018 people, how is this new and/or foreign?

They may already be wise as to what they can/cannot recycle. Not every type of plastic/paper/etc is accepted for recycling here!

It's also better than being thrown on the ground.

Yes

For sure - do what you can. When I typed that, in mind I had the regulars. Water/soda bottles, tin cans, you know...

Other way too

Don’t throw garbage in blue recycle bins or they often end up throwing out the whole lot if it’s contaminated

Exactly!

Very true. People are oblivious either way. Figure it's all the same thing. There's a giant difference

Green Bins

I am all for green bins too. I know you can collect the material & take to a disposal site in Brandon but I don’t think many do.  
I have a bin in the freezer and dispose when it gets full.  
 
Let’s green bin too Brandon.
