At the end of the pizza box article they tell folks not to throw the foil containers they cook their turkey/ham/whatever in the recycling.  Ewww!!  Who would?!

Krista, I have thrown foil containers that I have used for cooking in recycling.  But only after washing it completely clean.  I wash out everything I put in recycling (other than paper, of course).  I wonder if they do not want the aluminum pans even if they've been washed?  Also, there are some recyclable wrapping papers out there...

And regarding St. James, I wonder what was going on in the owners' minds when they required everyone to participate in a tip pool?  Also, what might have been going on when they refused to pay overtime wages?  They charge quite a pretty penny for their tea service over there...

OBTS, I get if it's cleaned out, but if folks are throwing in their greasy pizza boxes, I have a feeling they are not washing out their foil in the way you are.

That is good news about the student debt rate but it will probably start to increase.  My son is a freshman at NM Tech and was just notified that his NM Legislative Lottery Scholarship award will be placed on hold for the Spring 2014 semester.  The scholarship will kick in later in the semester but probably fund less than the full amount. It looks like he and a lot of other students will have to start taking on some loans to cover the difference.  I sure hope the legislature can agree on plan to address fund solvency in the next session.

Well, Krista, I will admit to having thrown a pizza box or two into the recycle bin--but only ones that weren't greasy.  I thought they could be recycled as long as there was no grease/food.  Won't be doing that anymore.

My understanding is that they can be so long as the cardboard isn't contaminated with grease.  It's not my intent to shame you or anyone else here; it just seems to be a big problem with materials not being correctly recycled and causing many problems at the plants.  This is definitely not the first article I've read about "please don't throw X, D, and S in your bin" and it most likely will not be the last.

Oh!  I also can't believe you can't recycle wrapping paper!  Anyone know why?
