    • Why? do you recognize that milk bottle or perhaps the box of beer? Aaah, the bleach bottle. Yes. that’s truly an embarrasing artifact.

  1. Who in their right mind would think a electric scooter should be thrown in the recyclable can? Township needs to do random inspections and fine people for nonsense like that.

  2. I’m a lady, and you know it’s not common sense for everyone that lithiuanium batteries are not to be recycled. Aren’t they metal based?
