David Pylyp I do try to recycle. I try to make things fit into the blue bin. But some weeks....
What struck me from this article is the comments section that was followed and then an interesting nugget.
"Curbside recycling - another "green dream" pushed down our throats by the environmentalists. See "Is Recycling A Waste Of Time" on YouTube with Thomas Deichmann (FORA.tv). There are much better ways to deal with our trash, but of course we're stuck with the ones that cost the most, do the least, and shut the greenies up."
"Yet another good reason not to live in Toronto the Taxed. Why have Torontonians become sheep and let this council play social engineering all of the time. Isn't their job to be good stewards of the taxes they collect? Instead they are constantly looking for new, expensive, and crazy ways to regulate your lives.
