Hubby and I just bought a recycling box for our new place since the guy next door said it's to each their own.
Lol ok. Fair enough, we share garbage cans though so that's cool. Anyways it's interesting the differences between here and Vancouver. You can put anything in the bins in Vancouver, and they provide you with containers. I mean you could put plastic bags ie. like tortilla bags in the bins as long as they have the triangle on them. I miss that.
I don't know what to do with these:
Haha old and new. Just noticed that now lol. Same goes with the milk containers, you could put all of that in the bins in Vancouver. Why can't you here? Where do they go?
Here's CRD's answer:
Where can I recycle juice boxes?Juice boxes are not accepted in the Blue Box Program. They are subject to the BC Recycling Regulation and are therefore part of the industry beverage container stewardship program which uses a deposit/refund system to collect and fund the recycling of beverage containers. Simply return your juice boxes to your retailer or a bottle depot for a refund and recycling.
Where can I recycle milk cartons?Milk and milk substitute paper cartons are not accepted in the Blue Box Program. Unlike juice boxes they are not subject to the BC Recycling Regulation. However, the BC Dairy Council launched a voluntary used milk container recycling program in the fall of 2006. You can now return all used milk and milk substitute containers to selected local depots. Since no deposit is paid on these containers, no payment will be made for returned milk containers.
Hmm well now I know I suppose lol. I need a good storage system for my recyclables. We missed the first recycle day, so it's over flowing in the bin.
And for those who are Harry Potter enthusiasts :)
Saw 'The End' last weekend. I was sad the whole way through. I feel like they didn't hold out for the final which is great. Wow. What an end to an era. I was 11 when this all started. I've grown up with the characters. Crazy. Don't worry i'm not going to spoil the movie for you, just go see it. I almost didn't want to because I don't want it to be over, but it was a great ending. Very exciting. Except the very last part, for those of you that have read the book you know what I'm talking about. Blech. Why did they do that? Stupid. Good thing it wasn't very long, or important. Well folks hubby and I are off to Quadra island for the weekend. I'll be back with new stories, and pictures soon. Have a fab weekend, I may be able to squeeze another post in before then, we'll see :)
