It’s great that people want to recycle, but what they put in the bin for pick up might not be appreciated.
Case in point: Bluewater Recycling in Ontario found a large sword. Yes, a fancy metal sword. The Company had this to say about the find, and it wasn’t appreciative. In their Facebook post, Bluewater noted that the weapon could have damaged machinery or a staffer.
Then they said “Just because something is made of metal and may be perfectly recyclable at a local scrap yard, does not mean it is acceptable in the blue box for recycling.”
