This morning we found a bag of what appeared to be recycling. Sorted recycling, nice. But unfortunately the critters had already been at it, because none of it was clean/washed, it smelled like food, tempting the wild things to rip open and see what kind of yummies they could find. And because of the unwashed state we had to bin it all.
Several things come to mind here, someone saved and sorted it that's good, unwashed not good, leaving it at the gate not good. If you have to drop your stuff off on days we are closed walk in with it. Leave it on the shelf in front of the recycling bays but don't leave landfill there because it will be all over the place when we get back.
It's not enough to sort and bag your recycling it has to be clean. It's a shame to go to the trouble to sort nicely and then have your efforts dumped. Take the next step rinse things out then we will happily recycle your stuff.
