Younger people--say 25 and under--probably can't remember a time without recycle bins next to the trash cans. 

The rest of us have had to get used to figuring out what goes in which bin.  The Earth is worth it, right? 

Over the years changes have come to recycling and our approach to it.  Rogue Disposal and Recycling in Medford rolls with the changes, as do Jackson County Master Recyclers

And the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality gets a piece of this puzzle as well.  Visitors from all three talk about recycling practices and challenges.
