However these same people fill their garbage cans each week with recyclable items, such as aluminum cans, cardboard, paper, plastic jugs, and newspapers. My neigh boor alone throws away about 1 00 empty soda/beer cans each week, and here in Oregon that is money being thrown out, not just recycling we can take these cans in to our stores and receive . 05 each can which really adds up after a while. I believe that the failure to recycle is the failure of the people within the community; we all say e want to do it we just fail to follow through.
Our trash company gives each household a large recycling can at no charge to use each week, have personally filled this can every week with my household recycling, and have saved space in over half my trash cans. See my neighbor’s trash cans overflowing with garbage each week and their recycling cans never brought out. I feel that if each individual in our community would put forth the extra effort to recycle a bit more each week we can cut back on this problem.
