I didn't ask for that monstrosity of a recycle bin in the first place. They just drop it off and expect people to find a place to store and use it. If they want recyclables they'll get it however I put in the bin. If its a problem they can come and get it. Yep, I'm on one today.

Keep in mind that putting things in the bin however you feel like it could potentially make an entire load of otherwise good recycling unusable. If you aren't going to do it right, throw it in the trash. It's not that difficult, you just need to learn a different routine which soon becomes second nature.

I've been using an all in one bin for about 15 years. It's so easy.

It obvious that one doesn't care. Some do. Some don't.

Those that don't potentially sabatoge the efforts of those that do, and it's not only frustrating, but it leads to unnecessary stuff going to the landfill.

I'm determined to get this right. I printed out many of the one page documents. Bookmarked the republic pages. No pizza boxes here though lol. I stopped eating wheat it's so last year.

My problem is milk cartoon boxes, or those liquid egg boxes. Their lids are plastic. The boxes all have "recyclable " marks.
Am I supposed to cut the plastic lids out before I put the box in recycle?

I would cut them out and put them in with the recycle, after you clean, wash, dry! It's a small effort, but it gets it in there and it kind of like breaking down boxes before you put those in too.

Will do. I'm kind of getting a handle on keeping my blue bin sorted out correctly.

You can call them and ask them to replace your bin with a smaller one. The ones they gave our neighborhood are absolutely huge and as such, I don't end up putting my recycling or trash out for 2 or 3 weeks at a time.
