No – not the one in your dock (or recycle bin if you’re a windows user) – the one in your kitchen. It occurred to me when talking to my mother-in-law recently that there are very few things you can’t recycle. All paper products, most plastics, batteries (apparently one small lithium cell can poison several thousand gallons of water – so these really should be recycled), anything biodegradable can be made into compost.
The only thing which I routinely throw away which I have no hope of recycling is polystyrene packaging, which I personally believe ought to be illegal. Whaaaa? I here you say? It ought to be illegal – because it’s not recyclable (it is reusable, but most people who get it don’t have any further need for it), and it is perfectly replaceable; either with the starch stuff that is water soluble, or with corrugated cardboard, which is both biodegradable and recyclable.
