**I hate to burst your bubble, but all that recycling you have been doing just goes right to the same landfill as your dirty diapers. The deal was done just to get federal monies to get recycling going. The only thing recycled are the aluminum cans. **
Gosh. I'll have to tell that to my husband...who happens to manage a paper and aluminum recycling plant.
Next time you grocery shop take a look at the bottom of the paper bag. That's just *one* clue as to how paper is being recycled.

Post consumer content does not come from household garbage. That is full of stickies and other nasties that those versed in paper industry know of. The post consumer content is from corrugated bales produced by industry, grocery stores and such. And yes, as I said...Aluminum cans are valuable and recycled. Sure we sort it all, but most goes to the landfill.
That darn recycled content toilet paper ain't selling so well either. That's why Charmin, Kimberly Clarke and such import all that eucalyptus pulp for their tissue mills here in Wisconsin. They cut down rainforests and have the pulp sent here on ships.
