Why must recycling be so difficult?

GUEST COLUMN: Why must recycling be so difficult?.

Submitted by the Kingston Recycling Committee

It seems everyone is talking about recycling and how important it is for our environment as well as our wallet. Yet, if you are like me, you are confused about exactly what can be recycled and where.

Many of the products we now purchase come in containers that contain that familiar recycle triangle with a number inside. You would think that this means the item can be recycled. And it does. But perhaps not in our town. Why?
