Here is a problem I need help with:
My in-laws refuse to recycle even though they live in a N.C. city that will pick it up by the curb. My father-in-law purchases and throws away several different newspapers a day. They drink several beverages from plastic bottles a day. They filled my recycling bag (the one I keep upstairs that I collect for a couple of days before I take them to the garage to sort) in an afternoon.
How do I convince them that recycling is not only extremely simple for them, but a "must do?"
Anytime I mention it, they sigh and say that they've been meaning to start. However . . . .
Please comment with some advice. Don't worry, they don't have a computer, so they'll never know you wrote in!
