Recycle Smart!

 

NO Recycling in BAGS!  Bagged recyclables end up landfilled, not recycled, because there is no way to open those bags.  Recyclables can only be reused if we can sort them into like materials. If recyclables are stuck in plastic or paper bags; metal cans, for example, cannot be sorted differently than a plastic water bottle, and cannot be recycled.

America's 41st President is in the intensive care unit at a Houston hospital. Former President George H.W. Bush is being treated for an infection that spread to his blood. A statement from his spokesman says the 93-year-old Bush is responding to treatment.        French President Emmanuel Macron [[ mah-CRONE ]] and his wife will be in for star treatment at the White House today. The Macrons will be formally greeted on the South Lawn this morning and honored during a state dinner tonight in the first official state visit of the Trump administration. The Trumps and the Macrons had dinner at historic Mount Vernon, Virginia last night.        At least ten people are dead after a man in a rental van ran down people in Toronto. More than a dozen others were hurt in the attack on one of the busiest streets in Canada yesterday afternoon. Police arrested the 25-year-old suspected driver.        A Senate committee reportedly is delaying panel is pushing back a confirmation hearing for the doctor President Trump wants to be Secretary of Veterans Affairs. The "Washington Post" reports lawmakers are uneasy about White House physician Ronny Jackson's lack of management experience.        [[ Note nature ]]       Closing arguments are set to begin today in Bill Cosby's retrial on sexual assault charges. The legendary comedian is accused of drugging and molesting Temple University athletic department staffer Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. The 80-year-old Cosby's first trial last year ended in a mistrial when jurors couldn't reach a verdict.       The Justice Department is awarding a million-dollar grant to first responders who handled the deadly mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
