A little nugget of information - If you recycle plastic bottles (number 1 or number 2), or most other plastic containers except maybe number 7, you may have to remove the lid, top, cork, screw top, or whatever for proper recycling. Alot of sorting places will remove the bottle from the stream if it has its top on because the top is usually a different type of plastic that is not easily recycled. Removing the top helps insure the container will be properly recycled. Metal screw tops and pop tops may be able to go with cans. I save corks for crafts projects. The plastic tops, well, mostly must be trashed. This sounds like a good product packaging project in the making!

In Brazil I know we separate the 4 elements paper, plastic, metal and glass. But in USA, where I live now, the collection of recyclables is all together. Why should I separate them here?

Can I say that this post has really given us a wake up call really. I know when I wrote a paper on health issues at college I knew the research work did make sense as some environmentalists opposed me for doing that.
