Our community/County does recycle plastic, and so did LA County and the same was true for Napa...A

It's important for people to know what is considered a recyclable material in their area so as to not get frustrated when they don't stop.

Thank you for the reminder about styrofoam, Roy. I am always miffed when I receive a package with styrofoam filler!

Good morning again, Roy. I take my plastic bags and styrofoam to Publix where they have special containers to collect them.

In my area, they have cut down the list of things they will accept in the recycle bin but I seem to still have more in my recycle bin than I do the trash bin.

Roy, for those that recycle, hopefully they know these rules, and don't put these things in the recycling bin.

Roy, this is great information to pass along to other's. A lot of individuals don't know that plastic bags can not be recycled. Thanks for sharing. I hope you have a great week ahead.

I have done much more online shopping since the pandemic.  It has given me an upclose personal realization of how many boxes online shopping requires.  It's important that we recycle.
