    WASTE MANAGEMENT now refuses to take clean cardboard unless it is inside the can, mostly in small pieces. We get a lot of boxes so we would (paper) bag newsprint, ads, and junkmail plus cut and fold clean cardboard, laying against can. No problems . . .

    REcently, we had a LOT of boxes so I cut them and folded and laid them atop the can and as usual, paper separately. Waste Management THREW all my hard work into the landfill trash pile we put out on the other side of the driveway ~ not taking any board. Calling office, was told it needs to fit IN can, not aside, atop or any other preposition! Hauling to a cardboard drop-off box is one of the only other options unless I want to to be like Sweeney Todd but slaughtering boxes instead.

    Wish unilateral decisions would be made and adhered to across a county or state OR country.

    I have heard so many people and friends telling me that plastic is plastic, they didn't know about the numbers!!! Since I found this website has been so helpful!! I have learned so much and share with my family and friends, even my boss who is an engineer didn't know about the numbers!! Example in one of the recycling center only receives 1 & 2, so I used to throw away the 3 -7 ... But now I will go once a month to a different one, where they accept 1-5 & 7 ... Maybe I have much time on my hands, but I think it's my obligation do something for my Mother Earth.

    Recycling should. S made easier in my opinion focusing on the numbers is hard and confusing. Maybe should say I'm
    Recyclable than the number to start the ball rolling bs looking for the number. Some people are so busy it can be frustrating at best.
