Kudos to Sun Journal reporter Bonnie Washuk for a very informative, well-done article about recycling (Nov 4).

As an avid recycler, I do my best to stay on top of protecting this planet by recycling whenever, whatever, I can. Through that article, I found that I am guilty of putting Styrofoam in the recycling bin. I was under the false impression that, if an item had the little triangle symbol, it was all set to go.

So, thanks for setting me straight.

I have a suggestion that might be helpful — if Lewiston could distribute little refrigerator magnets with a list of what is recyclable and not.

Just an idea. Seeing it on the refrigerator would remind people.
