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.)
Get a second bin so you can get in it and slide down the stairs! That is much more fun.
…or down a big hill….do you have hills in Seward?
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! You’re a gentleman recycler, too!
Why is yours yellow?
Yellow means we care.
I was thinking more along the lines of, “Yellow means we’re scared of our cruel environmental overlords.”
“Nobody calls me….yellow.”
Don’t eat yellow snow!
My comment got filtered. What am I, Deanne?
I fixed it. I had to click the “He’s not Deanne” button.
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?
hehe….number 1 & 2…..
Better yet I will bring them to the family reunion in my nice AMERICAN car, you guys can cram it into your FOREIGN car and take it back to Nebraska.
I like you Peggy, you think just like I do. Pee and Poo (oh I mean 1 & 2) are always fun to chat about.
