    I come from a tiny rural community without a recycle program for hours, and where I live now has one but I don't know anything about it, they don't collect from your house unless you pay an outside service, and I don't have a car. Being able to ask my bf for a ride to drop off bottles or cardboard, knowing that everything is properly sorted and it won't turn into an all day affair, makes our introduction to recycling much less complicated.

    There's obviously a problem with haulers not communicating specifics about what can and can't be successfully recycled and what they can really accept. The majority of people here are saying they Mostly learned here about what can be recycled... which is something their haulers should be telling them. It makes me very suspicious about what really makes it to the recycling centers vs. the landfills, when haulers don't care to make sure their customers are told all the specifics.

    I am confused about how much rinsing/cleaning is necessary for recyclable food containers before putting them in the recycling bin. One thing I read on this site said that containers should be free of grease and have no food residue. Another thing I read said that a quick rinse was enough. Peanut butter jars are the big question mark for me here. A quick rinse hardly does anything to clean the jar. It would take soap, water, and a little scrubbing to get it clean. How clean does it have to be? If it needs to be washed well so that it doesn't contaminate other recyclables, then I will just be throwing those in the trash. It's too much time/trouble to wash them well. I hope you will address this issue in an article soon. Thanks!
