Being a throw away society shouldn’t be something we are proud of. Honestly as a country I think we should be ashamed that we haven’t moved past this by now. Not only should recycling and reuse be encouraged it should be supported. By buying goods made from recycled materials and by making purchases from companies that just don’t fake being concerned about the world we live in. For the record I’m not claiming Waste Management is a company that truly believes in being eco-friendly. I believe they care more about the overall bottom line than their impact on the land. Most large companies have this same mentality. Which is another reason people don’t trust statements made from these corporations.
It was mentioned on Living with Ed on Planet Green that in Los Angeles recycled bottles with caps still on them are discarded and not recycled. This is yet another example of why consumers who take recycling seriously worry about where their bin contents are going and how they are put to use.

Whoever runs the Waste Management website needs fired. Every link is a pop up and you can no longer easily find what materials are acceptable for recycling in your area.
