Re: Garbage Island


Just north of you we can recycle:

Plastic bottles - pop bottles are refundable
Glass bottles - beer, liquor and wine are refundable
Juice containers - refundable
Milk cartons - refundable
Glass food containers
Food cans
Plastic bottles
Leaves, pumpkins, Christmas trees (real)
A compostable trial project is underway

I live in a condominium so I take my stuff to a recycle centre or a bottle depot for refunds. Others have a blue bin that city picks up.

I just got back from visiting Yuma and I am always struck by the complete lacking of any recycling. California just over the river does have programs.
