A strange thing is that when the blue and brown bins (okay....CARTS! ) were delivered, I taped the paperwork with the recycling info on the side of my kitchen cabinet. There was one yellow paper, and another that has little pictures on it of the items you can and can't recycle.

Anyway, a few weeks ago, I happened to re-read the info. The paper with the pictures on it states that NO cardboard is allowed in the blue cart! So for the past couple of weeks I had been throwing the cardboard away which made my brown trash cart REALLY full and the blue one mostly empty.

Now that I read up (because of this thread - thank you!) on the sanantonio.gov website about the recycle program, I see that cardboard IS allowed in the blue bins. Whazzah? Hmmph!

Okay, so the world is right again.

I just recieved a shipment last week. The box contained a whole lot of packing peanuts. On top of the peanuts was a slip of paper that said not to throw the peanuts in the trash. It said to put them on your lawn and hose them down or in your compost bin and just add water. They were made from starch and quickly biodegradable. I put a few in a collander and sprayed them with water and sure enough they disappaered like magic. I had never seen this before and was quite impressed. I wonder if they would be good to thicken up a stew. How about packing peanut gravy? This is a Hobos dream come true.

This is true. Some people use peanuts in the bottom of pots for drainage when transplanting potted plants. Obviously, the ones made from starch are not recommended.
