I had the unfortunate luck of being directly behind our garbage truck on our street this morning so I got to watch them put the garbage in. I was shocked to see everyones recycling being put in this truck. Plastic milk containers, tin cans, glass bottles all from clearly marked recycle bins!!! Then I watched them compact it up… No getting the little bits of broken glass into a recycling center.
I am shocked and upset. I try to be very careful about seperating my recycling so to see that this work makes no difference is just wrong.
IF I get time today I am going to research if a typical garbage truck can process recycling!!
IF you know please post a comment!
