Hi I like Mike's point and realize I myself have done the same thing. The recycling instructions (I'm in Toronto) clearly say no clear plastic clamshell-type containers, but I have recycled them nonetheless. Why, I ask myself? It's because if I throw them out they will end up in landfill anyway, which is a dead loss, whereas in recycling I have some vague notion that they will be properly sorted and disposed of somehow. I also like Megan's point about sending a message about the types of items I would like to see recycled. It's aspirational recycling!
