    I personally prefer glass over aluminum since it doesn't harbor odors like plastic containers and is quite versatile. A large percentage of aluminum are cans and are used for soda which you would have to return to the store for your deposit back. However; most glass jars can be curbside recycled along with the lids separately.

    We recycle all of our beverage containers from glass, to aluminum and plastic. Often times, we use empty 1 gallon water and milk containers for watering plants and shrubs in our yard and even recycling used motor oil from our cars when the oil needs to be changed.

    I made the following comment 3 MONTHS AGO now and apparently it's fallen on deaf ears and nobody there CARES ABOUT the WEBSITE DESIGN OR OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALSO SAID THE SAME THING!!! GET RID OF YOUR STUPID IDIOTIC HUGE FIXED HEADER SO WE CAN ACTUALLY SEE THE CONTENT ON SMALLER TABLETS AND DEVICES BESIDES A FULL SIZE FULL HD RESOLUTION MONITOR!!! YOU ARE PROBABLY VIOLATING DISABILITY LAWS AS IT IS BECAUSE YOU HAVEN"T PROGRAMMED YOUR SITE FOR A LOWER RESOLUTION NEEDED FOR PARTIALLY BLIND SIGHT IMPAIRED PEOPLE WHO CAN'T SEE AT A FULL HD 1920 x 1080 resolution which you should NOT be using as your DEFAULT FOR WEBSITE DESIGN!!!

    Your HUGE RECYCLEBANK LOGO and HEADER BAR THAT IS TWICE AS HIGH OR MORE THAN IT NEEDS TO BE FOR THE SEARCH FIELD AND SOCIAL MEDIA BUTTONS PLUS THE MENU THAT DOESN"T HIDE OR GO AWAY TAKES UP A QUARTER OF MY TABLETS SCREEN SPACE (HEIGHT) AND I CAN"T EVEN DO THE SLIDE SHOWS ANYMORE BECAUSE I CAN BARELY SEE THE TEXT AND KEEP THE FORWARD BUTTONS OR NEXT BUTTONS VISIBLE!!! GET SOMEON WHO HAS A CLUE ON WEBSITE DESIGN TO MAKE IT USEFUL FOR YOUR CUSTOMERS AND NOT AN ART PROJECT WITH A HUGE UNNECESSARY LOGO TAKING UP VALUABLE SCREEN SPACE SO YOUR ACTUAL QUIZZES AND SLIDE SHOWS CAN"T EVEN BE USED PROPERLY ON SMALLER SCREEN DEVICES!!!

      Hi Ron! I don't work for Recyclebank, just wanted to offer support. It sucks you're having visibility issues with Recyclebank's website and I hope they will work to fix the issue as soon as possible. Surely they want to make their site accessible to everybody.
      I have a good friend who is partially blind , due to usher's syndrome, and a few deaf-blind friends, so am somewhat familiar with your concerns. Computer screens can be so difficult with low visibility, but it only takes some simple changes from websites to improve that. Unfortunately website designers and the companies who employ them don't know much about the struggles of people who are partially blind.
      I have had issues with Recyclebank's app but since I can use their website it hasn't bothered me. Now that I am aware of their website design issues as well, I will be emailing them and advocating for you and Randy, and all sight-impaired people.
      May I suggest you do the same thing? It's always more effective to hear directly from people effected. It could be an intern who reads these comments, or no one at all. They're much more likely to respond to email. Sometimes we have to educate people first, then get pissed off only if they don't listen.
