In Louisville (not here on the Indiana side of the River) they require residents to sort their trash into recycle and non-recycle containers, and charge a ‘recycle’ fee.
Recently a TV station did a report on how both containers (recycle and non) were being dumped into the same truck when collected “To save the city collection truck operating expenses”. So the consumer is paying…and doing the sorting, only to have the next step erase the effort and still the city takes the money. The “Green Effort” disappears as soon as the publicity fades !!
PS- Message to M Hoffman- I get my wine in a fine Cardboard Box, so I don’t need to use bags or sacks or even bottles !!! Since I usually drink it all on the way home from the store, I needn’t be concerned about all those containers laying around the house !!! [lol]
