Recycling @ Mom’s Organic

As you enter Mom’s Organic store where I shop, there is a large poster about recycling. I snapped it with my phone, so the resolution is not great, but it makes its point. I bring in a bag full of items to recycle almost every time I shop. (See list below photo.)

Since the photo is not sharp, I am listing the items (left to right) with the numbers or poundage below:
