Show your 'recycle heart' at fair

I am fascinated by how other countries approach recycling. I recently visited a website called Recycle More from Ireland. Their approach, like so many European countries, is detailed. They expect their citizens to make the effort to recycle as many items as possible. And they certainly don't limit their recycling to plastic bottles and aluminum cans. There is no one-stop drop-off for many items. If you are Irish, you take electronics back to electronic shops, batteries to shops that sell them, etc.

Some may be alike, but most have different scenes with a large, colorful turkey in the center. I think I have at least 30. I just cannot help myself when I see a pretty one that is cheap and colorful.

The police officer was waiting for him. He stopped the driver, read him his rights and administered the breathalyzer test. The results ...
