No one said recycling was fun

Some people are just overwhelmed by recycling. In Tahsis, we have the ability to recycle most materials and that can be daunting. But we all know the reality is that our dump is running out of room and eventually we will have to pay to have our garbage trucked out. That won't be cheap. The more we recycle, the less we pay for. Recycled materials earn some money; dumped materials earn none.

If nothing else, I would encourage people to start by recycling the things that can all go in the same bin. That way you have no sorting to do. One bin in the recycling centre will take: tin cans, all plastics with a number (1-7) on them, and cardboard milk cartons. If everyone recycled only those things, what a difference it would make.
