David P. Steiner Quotes

People mean well. But there is an unintended consequence of giving people bigger recycling bins and more opportunities to recycle—soon they want to recycle everything.

Modern recycling plants cannot handle certain kinds of items and some like plastic shopping bags and old garden hoses wrap around the machinery and impair the normal recycling process. So human labor is needed to eliminated those items, thus making the process more costly and in many cases making it unprofitable to recycle at all.
