When Plastic Attacks
My kitchen counter is being swallowed by plastic. Maybe it's liberal guilt. Or laziness. Or just the ridiculous amount of bottled water I drink. But it's being devoured, all the same. The time has come for a trip to the recycling center.

Remember that Albuquerqueans can also leave their recyclables at the curb on trash pickup days, and trucks will come along and haul them to the recycling plant. We would do well to take advantage of this, as New Mexico only recycles 3 percent of its trash, as opposed to the national average of 32 percent, according to NMED.
