WLOX Editorial: Recycle Editorial Feedback

Posted: Updated:

Recently we did an editorial asking the question why don't you recycle?  It hit a nerve.On our web site we heard from a lot of folks who don't recycle.

Steven posted, "Since I've moved to Biloxi. I find that during our apartment hunting and the one that we live in now. There aren't any containers for people to put recycle items in."

Another person posted, "We live in Robinwood Forest and used to put the recycle bin out every week. Then for some reason the bin would sit there for weeks."

A Diamondhead man posted, "Recycling got to be too much of a headache so I said to heck with it. They are worse than a bunch of grumpy old grouches."

Natosha says she does not recycle, "Because it's a proven fact that it uses up more materials and creates more toxins to recycle than to not recycle. Don't believe me-- Look it up."

And another viewer wrote, "I'm sick and tired of coming home and finding my recycle bind sitting at the end of the driveway still full. Or worse yet, spending 15 minutes picking up everything that is blowing around the neighborhood."

There was one post that supported recycling. Gail wrote, "There is absolutely no reason to not recycle." 

Thanks for all your comments. If you too want to share your thoughts on this editorial post your feedback in the comment area at the end of any of the editorials on this web site, and  you might just see your feedback on air.
