I routinely deposit my recyclables (paper, cardboard and glass/plastic) every week and often see both paper and recyclables dumped in plastic bags. The signs say “no plastic bags.” Duh — can people not read.
I propose that occasionally, there be a plastic patrol with folks at that location, catching the plastic baggers and telling them to take everything out of their bags and dispose in the correct bins. It could be a pop-up sort of thing so the transgressors will never know when they may be caught.
Wouldn’t be a bad idea to institute a fine as well. :)
We all need to pay attention and help recycle what we can in an intelligent manner.
