  1. I only recycle platic bottles, cans, and glass bottles. Then you take them to the recycling center and get money for it 👍🏽

  2. I’m noticing a theme today. It’s not Earth Day is it?

    Glad you’re letting me know after some thirty years of recycling

  4. Recycling is the last of the 3 Rs. Reduce, reuse and recycle.

  5. greedy industrialists change packaging and stop blaming consumers. We are not free labor to separate stupid packages. Stop paying millions to media and invest in renewing packaging suitable to the 21st century.

  6. Everything should be clearly labeled “TRASH” or “RECYCLE” by law. All the words and packaging symbols are confusing

    • @eden zehqvi why?

    I’m pretty sure putting pizza boxes in the blue bin is the biggest recycling mistake.

  8. Recycling as a solution is a lie, only 5% is actually recycled.
    We simply can’t continue to consume like hungry hippos like that.

    I have been wondering about pizza boxes for a long time! Good to know!

  10. Good advice.
    But pointless unless your trash collection services – whether private or local government – can be trusted to actually recycle.
    An astonishing amount of recyclable waste still goes – quietly – into landfills. Just because your refuse agency hands out colorful leaflets with glowing accounts of recycling doesn’t always mean they’re actually doing it.

    • But generally yes they do actually recycle it. Though, sometimes, there is contamination or perhaps there is a glut in the market so a batch gets thrown out, or some other issue, but this is life, we are not perfect but we do our best.

    Very informative. And she’s quite lovely. Makes a story about trash so much more enjoyable.

    So.

    Pizza boxes. I didn’t know that.

    Jethro Tull had that song: “Nothing is Easy”.

  12. Need to update your story.
    YOU CANNOT BRING BACK PLASTIC BAGS TO THE STORES even to recycle. They don’t want you’re virus-infected bags brought on the property.

  13. I dont recycle, I hoard 🙁 you never know when you need aluminum or plastic.

  14. Why is recycling so confusing? Can someone not be employed to sort it? It creates a job and it helps the planet because you almost need intense training to figure this out, what company accepts what etc etc

    In related news; China is no longer accepting our recyclables. Now, we have to process our own.

  16. Most of the stuff labeled recyclable is not recyclable. Your coffee cup probably has the logo so does your juice box and your milk carton.
    Yes individually they are recyclable but not when cardboard is lined with plastic…big scam

      the republican controlled senate issued a 158 page report on april 21st stateing…

      on Tuesday, chaired by North Carolina Republican Richard Burr, reaffirmed its support for a January 2017 intelligence assessment, which found that “Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, denigrate Secretary [Hillary] Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump. We have high confidence in these judgments.”
