The recycling system in this state is totally messed up. For most things, the only choice is curbside. Then, there are all these "special" collections - on different days, in different locations, where only one type of item is collected.

Then, there is the bottle deposits system for certain types of containers. If it didn't come from that store, you can't return it there. Crazy!

There are other parts of the country that have dealt with the recycling issues in a much more logical manner.

However, as usual, Connecticut has to go it alone, invent its own system, take decades to do it, and spend millions of dollars in the process of inventing its own way.

There are "best practices" for this industry. None of them are practiced here.

It is time to get rid of the bozos who staff MDC, CRRA and the legislature and get people with good common sense in office.

How come Dell / Sony don't provide customers with the Material Safety Data Sheet as required?

Perhaps it is because the MSDS states in part 'keep away from children','skin','respritory', 'mucous membrane' and 'eye''irritation', including 'loss of sight'.
