    It’s not just ‘too much trash’, it’s any kind of contamination. See that public blue bin for mixed recyclables? If someone tosses a half full soda bottle in there with the lid not secure, all the paper in there is a loss. And if they toss in a plastic that can’t be recycled in that stream…

    Honestly, there is little benefit from recycling paper when you can’t reliably control the waste stream start to finish. Better to just let nature recycle it.

    Same for plastic. At this point, we should just decide that all consumer packaging plastics should be biodegradable and be done with it. Give the plastics companies the right incentives, and they’ll get it done.Report

    The GF always takes recyclables from my house after a visit. “Why don’t you recycle?” she asks. Hey, if there was value, I’d be paid to do it and the law don’t make me. So I’m not. If the stuff is valuable enough, I’ll either do it and make money or someone else will….and that’s not happening…so I ain’t doing it. My time is more valuable.Report
