OK – We’ve all done it – We’re in a hurry on garbage day and we rush it out to the curb without organizing it properly. But have you taken the time to think it out?
There are people physically sorting out your recycling items. They do this for a living. They get paid to do this. So when things are not sorted as required…..time (which is money) is spent re-organizing and trouble-shooting.
Roughly $85,000 a year of your money.
