i can’t figure out the city’s recycling, either – sometimes they take the paper and plastic and leave the glass, sometimes they take everything, sometimes they take half of everything. i just can’t work it out! good to know where dave’s is moving too, thanks.

yes. i’ve had my recycling left & placed kindly in my trash.
perhaps someday we can do away w/ all the bizarre sorting and confusion–as grist says of “single-stream” systems:

“Single stream recycling helps cities divert 50 percent, 60 percent, even 70 percent of their waste from the landfill by allowing households to put all their recyclables in the same bin: cans, bottles, paper, cardboard, you name it. No more sorting and separating, and no doubt the simplicity of single stream has been a major component of its ability to boost recycling rates. But its larger impact probably results from what can go into that recycling bin that now stands unused: compost. A huge amount of municipal solid waste is compostable, 30 percent or more, but this material usually ends up in the landfill, where it decays anaerobically into climate-screwing methane gas.”

in the meantime, we’ll try to investigate (and press the daily news record to look into it?) the h-burg system and keep our backyard compost pile decomposing away.

i just wanted to let you know that if they continue to pass up your recycling you are always able to take paper recycling to emu and put in their paper recycling trailer. just in case you didnt know.

thanks, ryan. we’ve heard that rumor re: emu recycling…but we’ve worried that it was just a rumor and that the rent-a-cops in golf carts would come after us for unsolicited dumping. thanks for the clarification. we’ve been oh so impressed with the efforts of jonathan lantz-trissel and others to develop an amazing recycling facility at emu.

Our paper recycling was constantly being left unrecycled, apparently because we had put the newspaper in brown bags. So supposedly they will take paper as long as it is not put inside other recyclable paper.
