Has anyone thought of the energy, chemicals and effort necessary to recycle newsprint? About 25 years ago old newspapers were chopped up into blow inplace type insulation, but I haven't seen that product available for years. I know from friends in the waste business that there is virtually no market for old newsprint locally --so what happens to all the newspapers I dilligently collect for recycling? I suspicion they end up in a landfill anyway.

The best thing about recycling around here is that the courts make criminals do their "community service" sorting the stuff in the orange recycling bags. I'll toss some cans or bottles in the bag sometimes just to give the thugs something to do.
