For most of us, trash is something we throw into a bin, never to be seen again. We never stop to think twice about what happens to that empty candy wrapper, that dirty paper towel, that empty jar - and why would we? Trash is trash for a reason - it's

Noted and article read. Thanks Cher.
I live in a small town and we have a good system for garbage. We have one bin for just garbage (some of it can go into making your own compost), one bin is for leaves, branches, grass etc that is made into soil, that will be sold towards late summer, and we blue bags for all paper products, plastics etc that are sent to be recycled, and we have to have a small container of our own to put out for glass jars or other types of glass. We recycle all pop cans, bottles, plastic drink bottles, tetra packs at a recycling depot as we pay tax on these items and we get the money back.
