Recycling obstacles

To The Editor:

I am writing to express my disappointment in the recycling system that is in effect this year. We have
always been able to take wine bottles and glass containers to the recycle center, and we were paid a
small amount for them.

Now that the center by Saugus Café is no longer there, we take things to the center at Albertson's on Bouquet. However, the manager of the store told us that the center does not accept wine bottles and glass containers anymore. So in order to recycle these items for reimbursement we have to drive to Newhall, and then they only take them as part of what they call "mixed" containers.

People can of course simply put things in the recycle containers that are picked up at the curb each week,
but that does not do much to encourage the amount of recycling that is truly needed to make a real
difference. I know a lot of people who are now simply throwing their bottles and containers in the trash. I
would like to know, why the change?
