Why cant more be recycled?
Original post made

I just got my new recycle cart and I am at a loss why there are so many items that can be recycled that are being diverted to a landfill. What I am concerned about is the amount of plastic items that are recyclable that they wont let us put in. Anything marked with the recyclable triangle can be recycled but Pleasanton Garbage is sending 50% of it to a landfill because its a wide mouth container or od shape? I am at a loss. Yogurt containers, butter tubs, cottage cheese tubs, and many other items don't fit their mold of recyclable, but they clearly are. Also plastic bags are recyclable if grocery stores can do it why cant Pleasanton Garbage? It seems like a giant step back to me? What do you think?
