For some reason, my most popular blogs seem to be when I write about garbage. Our condo complex has a dedicated mixed stream recycling dumpster. It's very popular. In fact, it's often overflowing. Thing is, it need not be overflowing. They say no plastic bags--most of the stuff is in plastic bags. They say flatten cardboard, so most of the cardboard is in its upright position. Yesterday I dumped the stuff out of the plastic bags and flattened the cardboard boxes. The dumpster went from overflowing to having plenty of room.
People want to recycle, but they sure are lazy.
