December 18, 2006



I listened to Joel Makower's 8 minute recording on Wal-Mart, and I couldn't believe what he was saying. I work for Wal-Mart and they barely recycle anything. Most of the time I cannot even find the bin to recycle the bags that people waste. Plastic hangers that people don't take home are thrown in the trash instead of being sent back to the softline department to be used again. There are no recycle bins for anything but for plastic bags, where Publix in the same town has recycle bins for aluminum cans, plastic bags, paper bags and styrofoam. Haven't noticed any special recycled packaging either or even the recycled napkins, toilet paper, etc. that the other grocery stores sell. I think Wal-Mart is pulling the wool over somebody's eyes.
