    Plastics take a long time to decompose.

    Sha'ron H asked about recycling plastic cutlery. I think most curbside recycling will not take or be able to handle these because (a) they are small pieces, and (b) most are polystyrene rather than PP or HDPE. But do contact your town & ask. A neat thing to do would be to get everyone in your neighborhood to wash them (yes the PS ones can be washed in your dishwasher!) & either re-used or collected in a large container. Then check in your town, or online - you can actually give such a drum or even sell it if you have enough to one of the many recycling companies. Just a thought from a plastics guy trying to help....

    Also, if you receive shipped goods that are packed in EPS "peanuts", do at least one of these 2 things: save them & re-use them to ship your own stuff (we do this in our workplace), or encourage the shipper not to use them (such as ULine), and instead use "peanuts" made from starch or biodegradable plastics....

    A crying shame that PS #6 plastic is not collected & segregated because many plastic processors could use it to make new containers & other articles. Encourage your municipality to consider this!
