Do you feel guilty when you toss a can in the garbage instead of recycle ?

    Yes. It's throwing away not only the metal itself, but the oil and gas and time and energy it took to make it. I was taught to be conservative, and throwing recyclables in the trash just isn't. Aluminum is still pretty cheap. Let's keep it that way by recycling it and using it over and over again.

    When there's no recycling bins around .. I'd much rather that any TRASH be placed in TRASH Bins (than just be tossed anywhere at all).

    Now I do try to recycle as much as I can .. but with Vision Impairment .. I have difficulty at times figuring out if something is recyclable or not (just can't see those little itty bitty symbols on the package).

    It's all just trash, it eventually ends up in a new fender or engine block at some point anyways

    Guilt is not in the equation. I am however, an avid recycler. I have not been brainwashed by the Greenies. It has NOTHING to do with the global warming hoax.
    The ONLY reason I recycle is because, SOMEONE can make a BUSINESS out of what would normally be thrown into the garbage. So, I can either put money in someones pocket by salvaging consumable items, or I can toss it into the land fill. I choose to keep it out of the landfill and get it back into circulation.

    The good thing is that I rarely,if ever not recycle everything.I am aware of the Great Pacific Garbage patch,about 1/2 the size of the USA,containing floating plastic debris.We deserve to feel guilty for destroying the earth that literally supports all living things.Aluminum cans can be reused continually.

    It's real easy throwing it in the trash if you think of it as a Liberal Progressive Communist Democrat.

    I really like the concept of recycling but I have not gotten in the habit of it and I'm not going to put guilt on myself over that.

    I live part of the year in NYC, so I'd collect cans/bottles and put them on the corner trash for the cash challenged.

    Yes. I bought a frozen meal the other day. It's Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers General Tso's Spicy Chicken. I wouldn't bother with it but I volunteer at a museum. The restaurant downstairs is pretty expensive. So the steamer thing has a plastic bowl & a plastic strainer. It's like throwing away a set of dishes every time you eat it! I just won't buy it again.

    Not quite as liberating as putting piranhas in a public swimming pool, poisoning a well, or getting drunk and beating up kindergartners.
