#haveuever thrown something recyclable away?

I saw #haveuever trending on twitter today and it got me thinking.   What first came to mind was,  “Have I ever thrown away something recyclable?”   I think we are all guilty of it,  so I decided to look up some facts.  In California,  nearly 22 billion CRV-eligible containers were sold last year.

Of those,  nearly 15 billion were recycled.  That is great — but more than 7 billion that ended up in landfills!

Here is something else to think about because California is a bottlebill state,  no one claimed the nearly $300 million worth of deposits!
