Recycling is a concept. It does not actually exist. Yes there are those blue bins dotting down the alleys, but is the trash even sorted in this great large city? I have my doubts. Remember when you were supposed to put your recycling in a blue bag, tie it up, and throw it in with the rest of your trash? Yeah, that happened. That was the city’s solution to the recycling problem for years. Yeah right like somebody actually sorted the trash and picked out those gross blue bags. This is why I have my doubts that the new recycling program with those fancy blue bins are actually getting the job done.
Unfortunately the full and disturbing extent of the issue does not stop here. With the alleys full of blue dots, at least we are pretending to care. Not in food service. Here, we don’t even pretend to try to recycle. There is only one bin, and let me tell you it is black.
Not even cardboard boxes are recycled. It is truly sick.
Even the places that say they do, it’s about a 50/50 shot. Don’t be fooled, recycling is not happening.
Yes, this is part where you are supposed to get angry.
