AS you read consider the following questions

  1. What kinds of papers are recyclable, according to the author?
  2. According to the author, how much has waste been reduced since Nova Scotia banned recyclable organics from landfills?
  3. How much money has been generated from Nova Scotia's recycling program?

We're in LaHave, Nova Scotia, learning how to talk trash. We've got an eight-page brochure about how to sort it and three bins under the sink. And we don't want our neighbors to think we're ugly Americans who can't deal with their garbage.

Here recycling is mandatory; there are garbage police. And if you don't sort your trash correctly, they simply don't pick it up and you have to root through it again until you get it right. And in LaHave, the pickup is just once every two weeks.
