Remember how I was complaining about how two years in a row my Christmas recycling has gone....UNrecycled?
Today I just watched the garbage guy throw my dead CHRISTMAS TREE in the trash. It was out curbside awaiting the Christmas tree mulching/composting recycling truck. I kept that damn thing on the side of my house for a MONTH and I just watched it go in the garbage truck. I don't even know what to say, except I have to make a personal apology to the polar bears. Poor babies.
****So I called the waste disposal people. This is how the call went.***
"Hello. The garbage men just put my christmas tree in the trash truck."
"Yes. That is how we're picking them up this year."
"Your plan for recycling the trees is to put them in a landfill?"
"No. That stuff is actually going to an incinerator. But they pull all the trees out and put them on a different truck before they incinerate everything."
YEA RIGHT. My flipping ASS they take all those trees out before they dump the stuff. Also, aren't the garbage trucks smashing everything as they go? That is such a crock. I want to march down to this incinerator and stand there and see if they pull Christmas trees out.
