This is ridiculous. I have been recycling for over 15 years and I was left a notice this week that they are no longer accepting glass because it is not profitable. What about our environment? All the glass that was being recycled will now be going directly to the land fill. Our world is really screwed up. It should be mandatory to have to recycle certain materials for the sake of our planet and country. Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?
me too

I am pretty mad about it too. I'm no tree hugger but it seems quite silly to throw any material that can be recycled into the landfill.

That sucks. I wish they would at least pick up cardboard at the curb.

Why not just not recycle for a few months...they'd have to do away with the recycling plant and jobs. Everything into the garbage!!!!!!!!!!

That is just so wrong for our community and our state! Maybe the major would be interested in this issue?

I wonder if this is just a Richmond decision or other areas doing it to?

Sounds like the major needs to form up some guidelines for those that are in the recycle biz. Here in Walla2 WA, they quit taking all glass. I understand that plas. is taking presence in the pkg. industry, but it seems that there is still a lot of glass packaging being produced. I can't see just tossing it either. Something has got to make a little more sense here?
Some one who cares
