Apparently my neighbors do not share in the joy of having the separate barrels in which recyclable materials can be sorted into. Frequently I find plastic bags full of paper in the paper recycling. Not the worst thing in the world, but is it that hard to take them out of the plastic bag and just put the plastic in the trash? Is it just my OCD tendencies that sorting recycling kind of fun for me?

Yesterday I was putting plastic into the barrel when I heard a distinct *CLINK* sound. I found in the plastic barrel no less than six glass bottles of beer, a glass jar of sauce (not rinsed) and TWO mini handbags. They were probably made of synthetic material but certainly not recyclable plastic.
