Persistent Recycling Contradictions
The county, which administers Princeton's curbside recycling service, says it wants the hauler and sorting facility to first "guarantee" that the additional items will be recycled. But that is logistically impossible, since it would mean tracking, to their eventual destinations, all of our recyclables, 60% of which are said to travel overseas to whomever is the highest bidder.
Back when the kids were young, if they rejected one food I'd try another. But when the world seems to be rejecting common sense, I tend to keep feeding it spoonfuls in the persistent belief that it will eventually change its mind.
