At work, we have four-holed recycling and waste bins with a label over each hole: CANS AND BOTTLES ONLY, WHITE PAPER ONLY, MIXED PAPER ONLY, and TRASH. Apparently the ISO 14000 compliance team decided that the way to stop so much non-trash from going into the trash was to add the word "ONLY" to its hole, too. Meanwhlie, they also wanted to make sure the "WE RECYCLE" slogan was displayed prominently. The unfortunate result was this sticker:
While we might be said to "recycle" trash down at the pyrolysis plant, it does make one wonder what we've started doing with all the cans, bottle, and paper.
