    The 5 points button is not working. It won't give me the points. I've been having this problem for the last 2 weeks. I can get the daily pledges just fine.

    I think they can handle 'some' food residue on certain items but obviously not paper as it's absorptive. On the one hand better safe than sorry when it comes to informing, on the other hand many folks trash recyclables because prep is too much trouble; need a compromising solution.

      New people join all the time, therefore it would be New to them and a re-view to us. Yes I also recognize questions from the past , so maybe I learned something.

      go back thru previous QOTD's & u'll notice that they have about a 10 month's supply of questions before repeating.

    That would be common sense not to leave food on anything in recycle.
