The city isn't really great about recycling. I don't even know where the recycling center is.

We just burn cardboard and other paper products, if we can. Wood stove.

City we might be moving to has a decent recycling system, apparently. I would like to do it. BF is used to it, so he would like to go back to recycling.

Yep!

Our town provides large trash and recycling containers. They take almost everything- plastic bags, bottles, cardboard, glass, etc. we always have way more recycling than trash.

My in laws live in Denver, and their trash gets sorted into recyclables and garbage at the plant so they just throw everything away in the regular trash. The first few days of a visit I always feel a little weird and slightly guilty for throwing recyclables in the trash, aheheh.

We're about to get no-sort bins here, so you just put all your recyclables in one big bin like the trash bin.

Yes. I've just moved towns and they have different items they recycle compared to my old town, so I've had to retrain myself. The first load I sent off would've been a nightmare for the sorting people.

We have 2 65 gallon containers- one for trash, and one for recycling. We don't have to sort the recycling which is really nice.

This is pretty much how ours is, except that our recycle bins (provided by the garbage people) are smaller than the trash can...but we have several. Out of habit we put plastic in one, paper in another, glass and cans and such in the last...but they throw all the recycling into the same bin so it's actually kind of silly that we still sort it

We don't recycle. They give us a recycling bin, but they never gave/can give any info about it. And the sorting bins inside it are small and about halfway down. So we might get 2 days of recycling out of a week anyway. It's not really a good system here.

Hopefully in Italy.

We're forced to. Sometimes it's annoying.
