Letter to the Editor


Dear SPB,

I was concerned when I read “How to get guests to recycle”

I thought we were supposed to wash washable recyclables before putting them in the recycling bin.

Entertaining is limited for me at 87 years plus, but, I recall how exasperating party guests can be, especially when a guest has had too much booze and cigarettes. But, we cleaned up afterwards if it took till dawn. Most parties were Friday or Saturday. That left Sunday to “Wash and be clean.”

It makes sense to me to wash the washables because the unwashed is food for insects and if the lid isn’t on tight for: mice, cats, dogs, raccoons, skunks and black birds, etc.

Please keep up the good work. I no longer have the stamina to help. Sincerely Yours,

Carolyn Dissoway
