recycling question

Here's one I've never seen asked here...

We're down here now and it drives me nuts that our condo doesn't recycle. Is there a place I can drop off our bottles, cans, plastic and newspaper at the end of the week? No one at the condo seems to know or care.


Havin' a blast...

Wait! Even easier, just on the side of Waterfront Market on Caroline Street is a complete recycling set-up.

Incidentally, it has been a real ordeal with recycling here, especially since the "word on the street" was that Waste Management just throws away the recycling.

In fact, what happens is many of us have no idea what materials to put into the recycling bins, and subsequently "dirty" recycling has to be thrown into the regular garbage trucks. And thus the legend was born, "Well, I SAW them throw my recycling away!"...

So thanks for asking the question, gfroch, we'll get it right eventually. In the meantime, I feel it's my responsibility to take care of my own bottles and cans, etc.

Please mention to the management your desire for recycling set-ups!

Definitely talk to your condo management about adding recycling to their waste contract. In the meantime, MikeM's advice is spot on.

thank you for the replies. As mentioned above, I have brought it up to the condo mgmt. and they aren't with it enough to care. To expensive...blah blah blah.

But fortunately our 2nd home in KW, the Key West Sailing Club does care and they have separate bins, so we've been bringing it there. Thanks again...

Or - drop off your recycling into someone's bin on the street the day/night before pick up.
