Beer Bottles, Yes; Grandma's China, No

One way to improve Sheridan's recycling program is if well-intentioned recyclers stop trying to recycle everything -- including grandma's china. Charles Martineau, Solid Waste Manager for the City of Sheridan, says they have uses in the City for glass recyclables, but there is a greener way.

According to the City of Sheridan website, residents in Sheridan County currently each toss 7.64 pounds of garbage daily -- most of which could be recycled -- excluding grandma's broken china.
