I know, sounds like a really odd question. I have been recycling for over 15 years. I live in a county that has had curbside recycling for ten plus years. The big question, though, is what is your recylcling to trash ratio?
In my county, each residence is given a yellow recycling bin. I have four. Each week the town picks up trash and recycling on Tuesdays for my area. Each Monday night my son, or since he broke his ankle I, take one trash bin and three to four recycling bins to the curb.
I also have a small fire pit that is fairly new. Some of what use to go in the recycling is now used as fire starter material. Sunday’s paper, rather than being recycled, is used to start an evening fire to roast marshmallows over. Burning trash is, I believe, illegal where I live but I can use some papers to start a small fire, especially now we finally have had some rain.
So, the question is, what is your recycling to trash ratio? Mine is 3 or 4 to 1 on the average week.
