Single Source Recycling of the type offered by the City of Stillwater makes this easy. All that is left is composting on a personal scale (food that is, yard waste is already composted by Waste Control). Already our recyling container is many times larger than our waste container. In fact our waste container frequently has just one bag of garbage in it per week. The biggest problem is that waste is picked up every week but recyling containers every other week. That means our recyling container is full and overflowing in two weeks time and our waste container, picked up very week, has one bag in it. Could this be reversed? I think many people don't understand how much material is listed as recyclable by the County. What a difference this is in just two decades and contributes much to the idea of a sustainable world.
