Blog Action Day – the Environment
This is a “sac jaune”. It is for recycling. We can get the bags for free at the town hall. In it we put paper, cardboard, cans, Tetrabrik packaging, plastic bottles except those that contained oil – all of these things in the same bag, basically clean and dry. This cuts way down on land fill and incineration. There is a day for their collection when they are put in the same place as regular garbage. If the pick-up people see that there is stuff in the bag that shouldn’t be there, they stick it in the dumpster. There is also a fenced-in place in the town in case it’s not the day – one can put the bag there. Glass is also recycled, but in a dumpster reserved for glass. Compost is in the garden.
A few simple efforts that can be made by each one that contribute to a better world.
