Why must the recycling be gift wrapped?

February 22, 2010

I too have had less than stellar success with the "new, improved" recycling ("Single-stream recycling isn't for us," Readers respond, Feb. 22). Home Depot told me I'd have to buy a $68 recycling container. My recycling was not collected several times when I put it out. Why can't we just put both paper and cans in blue bags out together? Why must they be in a special container? I too have pretty much decided to just not recycle if I have to gift wrap it.
