    I just wish I could put styrofoam in the blue bin. Half our blue bin contents don’t get recycled anyway so it seems a dumb line to draw.

    There is some styrofoam that has the recycling symbol on it; it's usually the ones that look like it has bigger chunks molded together.

    I wonder how many people just put shit in the blue bin just because they ran out of space in their black bin...

    I always put styrofoam in the bin if it has the recycle symbol on it.

    To my knowledge the CoC very clearly doesn’t accept any styrofoam as recycling, symbols don’t mean anything

    I feel like this debate comes up often, and is a Calgary specific problem. Lots of other municipalities accept it.

    You win. I learned something today.

    I also know a lot of peel off lids aren't recyclable. Like yogurt container lids, only the cup is.

    The city of calgary can't recycle plastic clamshells but you are allowed to send them. I say load up that blue bin. City needs to get on the incineration train to generate electricity.

    Pro tip, you can load your green bin with snow and it just gets hauled away too.

    Land filling styrofoam seems like a colossally bad idea so I wholeheartedly agree.

    It would be interesting if the blue and green bin trucks have a camera and bright light on there so they can see what gets dumped into the bin as a quick check. Then basically if there is an issue, the driver just presses the house on the map route on their tablet mounted in the truck so they can automatically issue warnings to the house based on a variety of pre-typed up reasons like "significant ineligible recyclable material in bin" or something along those lines. Then after 10 warnings or something, you get fined and it gets added on top of your property tax for the year

    I’ve definitely been issued warnings before. I think there is a camera so they can take a look at what they are picking up.

    I’d even settle for being allowed to take foam to the community recycling spots, that’s where you can get in some real trouble for dumping if caught though.

    I just don’t want to have to make a run to the dump to pay a minimum if I buy something large from Amazon, I’m still trying to fit the foam from my tv I bought in November into my black bin in chunks.

    P.L. Eng Tech's who have been given a stamp and skimmed through a cartoon flow sheet from the authority having jurisdiction who are now renowned experts in stamping requirements.

    Which can apparently be summed up as "I have a stamp now, so I need to stamp everything because it's technical, because this flow sheet".
    You watch your tone
    I only know the rules well since it took like 10 attempts on the authentication quiz for it to register.

    Ya of course. Technologists are always by the book. Have to be careful otherwise they will revise my 1000 word scope.

    There's no debate. I'd hire a tech over an engineer any day.
