Advertisements, a website and -- if a person does wrong -- a reminder note of what can and cannot be recycled are coming soon to most Pulaski County recyclers.

They are probably going to have to walk door to door, get neighbors involved and educate people. The acceptable items are listed on top of the recycling bin lids and they have not accepted plastic bags for some time now. Many are just lazy or stupid with it comes to recycling.

Or Go back to basics, Craig. Educate adults through their children. Just as was done with seat belts and public safety concerns. If we motivate students to do recycling right, they carry the message home and provide a lot of oversight.

The elected officials of the cities and the county have created a monopoly for Waste Management. Try having your garbage picked up by someone else!

At one time, shredded paper was to be put in clear plastic bags. I suppose so it didn’t fly around & out during collection. Is that out now?
Is an entire cardboard pizza box out because a piece of cheese melted to the side? What if pepperoni oil has soaked into the box, or a plastic dressing bottle can’t be completely rinsed, or a bit of peanut butter clings in its plastic jar; contaminated?
For the above reasons, and for the fact the yellow lidded Recycle container is not very stable to roll up an incline, due to the wheels being too close together, I just trash everything.

Thanks for proving my point LR1955.
