Trash in recycling bins? We all know better

Today I dropped off my recycling at the old Habitat ReStore site. Sitting next to the dumpster I chose to put my recycling in were a crock pot and a microwave oven. Really!!!

Just out of curiosity, I looked in the plastics bin and there was a big empty dog food bag and a bag of bags. The people who put these in pushed the items passed the NO PLASTIC BAGS sign. These items are all trash — not recyclables.

We have all been told many times what is recyclable and what is not. Please check out the Alpena Resource Recovery website.
