Blog, We Must

Does the Recycling Center in Chatham take Styrofoam Peanuts?

Why do I have to neatly stack newspapers that will ultimately be tossed into a shredding machine and pulped?

What happens if I forget to remove a cork from a spent bottle of merlot?

Why can't clear glass get recycled with green glass?

Can I recycle a soup can that still has a paper label on it?

Interesting questions, but the answers are likely to be even more interesting.

Now it's easy for anybody to pose a question, post a thought or exchange any idea related to recycling by using the ChathamRecycles.org blog!

A blog, as you know, is a sort of real-time virtual meeting hall -- an internet bulletin board where a community can meet, ask, share, wonder and engage in positive discussion. When we promised that ChathamRecycles.org would function as your comprehensive, one-stop destination for recyling news, we really meant it -- and part of our comprehensiveness has always been to allowresidents, businesses and visitors to log onto the site and participate.

The current blog has a few questions for Chathamites: WHY do you find it important to recycle?  HOW can we improve and increase recycling in Chatham? WHAT questions do you have about recycling in Chatham? 

We'd love to get your comments and feedback in response to these and other questions, so take a moment to pull up a mouse and start engaging with Chatham's Recycling community via the ChathamRecycles.org blog!
