Today I took two boxes in which computer equipment had arrived to the dump. A worker at the dump saw me about to take the polystyrene padding out of the boxes so that the cardboard could go in the cardboard recycling area and the polystyrene somewhere else. He said to leave the polystyrene in the boxes and put them both in the area marked "landfill" because if polystyrene is exposed it gets broken up and ends up everywhere, like "in the trees".
A large plastic demijohn and a plastic bottle airer from my wine-making days also had to go in landfill rather than being recycled. Our municipal dump doesn't seem to have a plastic recycling part.
Seems we still have a way to go regarding recycling as much as possible.
