Re: “You’re recycling flawed. Right here’s how”
(Web page B1, April 21):
I used to be dismayed that the April 21 article on recycling had a outstanding place in a newspaper serving Oakland as a result of it was solely based mostly on data from Mountain View.
I wrongly assumed that an knowledgeable from Oakland would write in about how a few of the limitations within the article don’t apply right here. As a substitute, you bought a letter from an Oakland resident about how she eliminated plastic clamshell packaging from her recycling stream due to the article.
In line with www.oaklandrecycles.com and www.recyclewhere.org, Oaklanders are capable of recycle on the curb all inflexible plastics from No. 1 to No. 7 if clear of any contents. The identical is true for cardboard egg cartons.
I’m the primary to confess that it is a complicated subject, however the East Bay Instances ought to have executed a a lot better job of overlaying the problem as an alternative of creating a neighborhood story appear to be a regionwide one.
