Admission: my first impression of the recycling here was totally wrong. True, there aren't many receptacles around town, you can only recycle plastic at the local groceries, and they only pick up paper from your house once in a mysterious while. But there is an Ecocenter right up the street that changes everything.

When I finally paid a visit during working hours, I had to conceal my glee at everything that could be recycled there: paper, cardboard, styrofoam, clothing, motor oil, cooking oil, organic waste, lightbulbs, car batteries, regular batteries, glass, plastic, wood, metal, old appliances and computers.... We will never have to throw another thing away!

In your face, Mayor Daley!
