Well, looky here.

November 11, 2008


 A nice bin on a crummy doorstep.

The recycling bin came today!  It’s much nicer than I thought it would be – larger than expected, and it comes with a lid!  Hopefully we won’t have to request an extra one (even though getting one more would be free).   I’m going to take it to school tomorrow to advertise it’s coolness to families, and also to perhaps sound out having families sponsor a month of recycling for the center.  This company will take plastics 1 – 7, so our milk cups (of which we use a-plenty) could be recycled!

I read an interesting article about how they sort this stuff.  Apparently we’re not using trained monkeys for this like Lloyd said.

    Yay! Get the second bin. Next time you have a party and six cases of empties, you’ll thank me.

    And thank you for the article. Very interesting!

    (I spent the morning going though old papers. Got a big pile for recycling, and a smaller one for burning.)

    I think my bin is a little larger than yours, and it quickly fills to overflowing. But mine gets picked up only once every two weeks, so maybe you’ll be okay. Unless you have a party with six cases of empties.

    Wow I love to recycle everything I can, however we can only recycle 1 and 2. I feel very guilty throwing away 3-7 so can I start keeping them and bring them to you?

    I like you Peggy, you think just like I do. Pee and Poo (oh I mean 1 & 2) are always fun to chat about.
