Like many of us, I spend quite a lot of time each week making sure that our rubbish (or "trash" if you're in the US) gets sorted properly to be recycled. In many areas of the UK you now get a hefty fine if you inadvertently put a bit of plastic in with your paper. Anyway, I was shocked to see this report this week.
This kind of apathy and "well I've done my bit" attitude quite literally stinks.
I guess the only way is to try to avoid producing so much waste in the first place.
