So a month ago I placed an old time box tv on my curb. The recycler truck placed a sticker on it saying it was illegal to dump electronics. Fine. I had my kids take it apart and take out the copper and then I dumped it in the forrest preserve trash can. The plastic parts I dumped in the recycling bin.
Over the next few weeks he only took the top half of my recycling and left the tv plastic and the rest. So today I parkes my car on the side and wattched him go from house to house and throw away recycling with no cares. Once He got to my house he started going througj each bag one by one dumping the no recyclables on the street blowing into the neighbors yard. I jumped out and said what the Hell are you doing? He says it is his job to go through and make sure it is all actually recyclable. Since when is this garbage man an environmental expert? I said Why didnt you go through everyone elses recycle bin and he proceeds to tell me he does what he wants. I said fine we will see and went back to my car to call his boss.
Then I look in my mirror and he is holding up styrofoam saying look at this, this is not recycling and through it out. I jumped out and and yelled Get the fuck out of here! Leave now! As he continues to go through and pick it a part. After a few minutes he finally places a sticker on my recycling saying it is non pick upable and left.
Went on their website where it says any type of plastic is recyclable here type 1 through 7 and their machines separates all trash that is not recyclable. So what is it to him if I want to try and recycle as much as I can? Just craziness! I am now discontinuing my reccyle program due to him.Last edited by spurgeonryan - on 03 October 2018
