The fun never ends in the land of Lego. We finally got our act together about the growing recycling pile under our kitchen sink. Although there is glass, battery, and paper recycling just across the street from our place here, we heard there was an alternative! Back in Austin, we would drive recycling to Ecology Action on 8th Street each week (about 20 minutes by car, but on the way to my office) because our neighborhood didn’t have recycling. Once there, we’d separate everything into different types of paper, plastic, metal, and glass. They even took plastic bags as well as food wrappers and such. From what we heard, Aarhus used to recycle like they do in Germany (meticulously separating everything, and taking plastics, too) but the public found out a few years back that they were just taking everything and burning it anyway! So there’s no more of that, no siree. =(
But on the bright side, I have found a new job here in Denmark!!!
