    Follow the directions set forth by our local refuse stakeholders! Do my part and share my knowledge with others concerning the 3Rs!
    It matters to me.

    I can just imagine! I volunteer at our church's thrift store and bring home the "recycling" on the days I work. You wouldn't believe the trash I have to pull out before I can put it in my recycle bin! I think a lot of people just don't care. My motto is "when in doubt, throw it out" when it comes to putting things in my recycle bin that are questionable.

    If China rejects our "garbage", what will happen?

    Education is definitely needed. I needed to call 911 not long ago when I fell, and one of the firemen used a paper towel to mop up something that had broken when I fell and then tossed the whole mess in a small cardboard box. He was going to put it in my recycling bin until I stopped him - said he always tossed cardboard in recycling even if it was greasy or contaminated, like pizza boxes. I told him he needed to stop doing that. Not sure if he got the message completely, but I had to try.

      I was astonished when I learned our recycling now accepts pizza boxes. Even so, if they're too greasy, I still toss 'em rather than recycle. One good question: How much is 'acceptable' grease?

      An excellent question. Let us know if you get clarification. As far as I know, ours still won't accept any grease-stained cardboard. I haven't gotten a clarification on boxes with metallic printed designs - I know they don't want metallic wrapping paper, but not clear if that goes for cardboard.
