Recycling

I would like to hear your opinion about recycling. 

11 years ago, I heard that recycling is meaningless from someone who was studying something related to recycling.......... (is there really such a thing?) 

He was explaining that it cost too much money to process recycled material correctly. I guess he meant the process after the recycling truck collect whatever it was in the recycling bins. I do not remember the details, but it was pretty surprising. He was saying that, giving the impression that there is no future or hope. I remember he worked so hard on his studies, working part time jobs and dating. He was dating a girl from Japan at that time. Both of them were studying English at the University International English program, and that is where they met. After a few years of studying in the US, he had to go back to Korea, and she also went back to Japan. I heard that she even moved to Korea to be with him a couple of years later. Now, they are happily married and have twin boys and a girl. Oh well, that is not true. He is married to someone else and I do not care how his life is going. However, his hopeless voice for recycling remains in my memory. Dammit.  

11 years is a long time. A lot of things have changed.

There was no smart phone and I was not old enough to drink legally. I was drinking many, many beers with Skittles. 

I want to know where all my recycled trash went.
