Increase recycling


As a resident and business owner in the community, I am continually perplexed each week, when I am sorting both my home and business recycling, why Lewiston does not accept more than just No. 2 plastics for recycling.

So many containers we purchase are not recyclable in our community. This is frustrating for those of us trying to do what we can to reduce the amount of garbage we contribute to landfills and incinerators.

I really hope Lewiston leaders consider increasing the variety of plastics able to be recycled in the near future, and work to encourage recycling in general.
