Just received a note from school, enclosed in its own handy-dandy ziplock bag, informing me that as of February 2006, we can no longer put regular alkaline batteries (AAA, AA, C, D) in the trash. The bag is to collect your household batteries.
But then you have to bring them to a special recycling center to have them recycled.
Ummm. Newsflash: This isn't going to work.
Curbside recycling encourages participation. Special trips to drop off batteries? Em, no.
Sometimes I don't like living in PC California
