    I have learned a lot through this site on how and what to properly recycle. We fill one large plastic bag with other plastic bags and bring it all to our grocery store once it's a big puff ball. Our other recyclables are placed in a used brown bag under our sink - once that's overflowing - we toss it in our recycling bin for the hauler.

    My recycle company take all my recyclables in one bin they supply to us, so we don't have to separate them.

    My recycle facility allows me to put glass, plastic, papers, cans all together in the same big bin. Why they want to sort all that is beyond me...…….

    Our town doesn't allow paper and cardboard to be together, cardboard in the paper dumpster will get the whole dumpster sent to the landfill. I am super careful to pick out anything a friend might have put in the wrong container before I haul it off.
