I don't want to hear it from anybody (TT) I'm not the best recycler. Up in Alaska, there is not any true recycling being done. It is cost prohibitive as all the recycle stuff has to be barged to the states and then sent somewhere. Shipping companies are not going to do that for free! (PakArt, correct me if I'm wrong or if things have changed) I said all that as I'm trying very hard to do it here in Wisconsin to reycle.
Out in the grage I have a bin for milk jugs and that type of plastic. A bin for glass, a bin for plastic soda/water bottles (I don't have many of them) a bin for steel cans (Tuna fish, veggies that come in cans) and soda cans. Oh, can't forget that stack for cardboard.
The other day went I went to flaten some cardboard I relized that that part of the garage was getting full so I decided to do a dump run.
I started placing the stuff in the back of the truck. I had a pile of feed sacks (Not good ones) so I scooped them up. As I did that I felt something break, then I smelt something! Some hen had laid eggs in that stack and I never found them till then! I was dry heaving and gagging. I got it all in and drove to the dump.
The helper guy came over to help and I told him to stay upwind, that there was some rotten eggs in the back, he didn't hear me and got closer and he started to gag! He walked away and I was laughing and gagging at the same time. He told me that in all the years of working at the dump that it was the worst smell that he had ever dealt with!
I got rotten egg juice in the back of the truck so I had to hose that out. Gagging the whole time.
Way back in high school. I remember doing a chemistry experiment and we got the smell of sulfur, sulfur is perfume compared to the smell of rotten eggs.
