Has anybody else been approached at Gratwick Park by an undercover Homeland Security officer? I’m just curious who you would call to see if his credentials are real of if he’s just goofing around. Was anybody else approached at Gratwick Park by an undercover Homeland Security officer? Thanks, Sound Off.

Once again someone wrote into Sound Off complaining that all the recycleable material is being dumped into the back of a regular garbage truck. I am kind of grateful to them, as it gives people another opportunity to become aware of the new ways recycled material is handled. Yes, it is all going into a single truck but that is because it is now sorted at the recycling plant. This is a great cost savings for our towns. No longer do the public works employees have to take the time to put the material in separate compartments, making the amount of time spent picking up the waste shorter. More material is being recycled. If a container has the recycle symbol you can put it in your bin. No more figuring out if cardboard has a wax coating, even take out containers, just put it in your bin. Check with your local government as to whether things like pizza boxes are allowed. I urge all of us to recycle more and check your facts before complaining.
