I am known as the mad recycler...
I live in a
y home, and recycle everything! At least when I can find a place that will recycle.
Our town used to have a great recycling regime, any and all paper, plastics 1 through 5, metal and glass. The people who run it hate it! They have cut it back and now we can only recycle plastic bottles. Do you know how much 1-5 plastics that leaves out!!! They have cut back on everything.
I have no transportation, but still have recycling products coming here from the days when I was the only one doing any recycling. At that time papers were used to fund a project fighting the powers that be--and we did fight. But we lost, surprise, surprise.
Periodically someone will take the things I have built up over to the recycling station. Until then, I just live with them. Good thing I have seven cats.
Meanwhile, people in the area are fighting windmills as though they were giant dragons coming to eat them. The arguments are ridiculous. They cause seizures. They cause heart attacks. They throw ice that crush houses. On and on, letters to the editor day after day. And they have managed to have them banned in most towns around. One town is installing them and heaven help the people on that town board!
One good note. Buffalo's busses run on something non-polluting. You can follow one down the road and not have any twinge of having to gasp for air.
Thank you Buffalo!
