\"There is a line through which plastic bags can seem to speak on their own.
However, what do you see with the lid open? Plastic bags.
So many plastic bags. Some are loose.
Some are recycled.
There are plastic bags even in plastic bags.
Not just bags.
In recent weeks, there has been a string of suspicious items in the public blue trolley outside this Crescentwood apartment. A fur vest.
A wicker basket

Pot Without handle. Flatware. A broken plate.
A bundle of used Swiffer mats and clothes dryers.

According to the material audit, the pollution level of the city\'s recycling projects exceeded from July 2016 to June 2017. Is it ignorance? Laziness?
Or deliberately ignore the rules?
The city of Winnipeg recently launched an advertising campaign showing tips on how to avoid recycling carts being recycled, as well as a beautiful poster outlining items that are allowed to be used.
An unscientific study of the types of items that often appear in blue bins and carts points out three categories of recyclers.

This list includes things like black plastic (
For example, a container for cardboard dumpbins mushrooms in a supermarket or coffee-cup lids)Plastic wrap (
Either the glass paper or the thicker one), Styrofoam (
Such as takeaway containers, coffee cups or meat dishes), paper cups (

The soup can be filled with cans of cans and shampoo bottles packed in empty cereal boxes.
Because there is no manual classification recycling in the warehouse, these things are often discarded.
That\'s right: your nested items may be landfill.
Others put recyclable items in plastic bags before putting them in the blue bin.
This also turns into trash: the automation system does not empty the bag and no one should put their hands into the opaque bag.
They were thrown out with their stuff.
The second class is made up of people who just want the best results-
People in the business call it \"wishful recyclers \".
\"This includes those who do not distinguish between\" reusable \"and\" recyclable.
\"These people are wearing clothes, running shoes, pots and pans and electronic products.
In the end, some people scoffed at the idea of recycling.
They are responsible for the pure garbage thrown in the blue trash can, even if there is a trash can next to it.
They\'re behind that dirty diaper, fast food everywhere.
French fries or half.
A full slurpe Cup with overflowing content that makes the entire contents of the bin unusable.

However, moving on, Wolseley\'s stereotype as a green area almost immediately proved to be wrong.
The public bins in front of the bakery are filled with dirty paper trays, dirty plastic cups (
Recyclable, but not recyclable when covering food)
There are also many compostable coffee cups from plastic straws and bakeries that cannot be recycled.
Go further along the driveway and the situation gets worse.

Peanuts;

Greasy pizza boxes, clothes and textiles;

The rules of the city of Winnipeg seem arbitrary.

Exceptions are not necessarily logical.

In fact, it said so on the cover of the car).
However, according to the needs and requirements of the company with which the city entered into the contract, these rules have been changed to accept different categories of recycled goods.
Mark Kingsley, head of waste transfer in Winnipeg, admitted: \"It could be very confusing,\" he said as Panet road crossed the city\'s latest g4 warehouse, winnieggers can put down one of the three places where many items are not accepted for residential recycling.

For example, foil or plastic film on plastic yogurt and cheese containers should be removed and discarded.
As for the mixed messages that urban residents may feel received over the years, Kingsley understands the frustration, but points out that the city has no control over the accepted messages.
