I assumed that every house recycles - I guess I've never driven around on garbage day.
We have one garbage can for recycling, one for actual garbage; we actually recycle more than we send out in garbage.
It is very easy to recycle. Please do it for our grandchildren.

I agree. My trash is a small bag. My recycling is three 13-gallon bags.

So, why do they only pick up the recycling once per week, but they pick up the trash twice per week?

Please re read my post. I never said the US didn't produce CO2 ( that's a natural event of all living creatures). What I said is that the BIGGEST producers of CO2 emissions are other countries, NOT the US.

Aside from that, It is established fact that CO2 emissions on a global basis are currently below levels identified by paleoclimatologists . Not to side track, but historically the earth has generally been warmer than it is today.

Yes recycling should be good but yes there are problems as well. It needs to be done correctly. This is another example about how we need to learn to not just accept everything at face value and look at both sides before we jump to conclusions.

Recycling is in trouble — and it might be your fault

Default Science is studying Bovine defecation.

Which contains Methane, a contributor to greenhouse gases.

Methane gas from cows: The proof is in the feces -- ScienceDaily

But Disney had the answer many years ago; This animal cannot defecate.

Let your trash and recyclables sit in your garage for a week and let us know which one smells. Do we have Ocean-friendly restaurants in the Villages?
