I’m ashamed to admit it, but in recent years, when I’ve stockpiled glass bottles and jars to take to one of the city’s recycling drop-off points, they’ve ended up in the trash because I never made it.
We’re getting the new single-stream 96-gallon rolling bins at any moment, and I could not be more excited! They take glass!!!
The city actually has a program that awards points for recycling based on weight. Another confession, not as shameful as the fact that I have harmed the planet with my reckless trash practices, is that when I can win points by doing something, I go all in.
I cannot wait to winnow down the contents of the trash bin in order to bulk up my recycling load. I am so going to win at this recycling game!
