Use it and lose it? or just wash it?

Until I worked in a plastics plant I never considered how plastic food containers were made.

Recently I watched how the garbage men that drive the truck that collects the recyclables actually put the stuff in their truck. It turns out that all the stuff, paper and plastic goes into the same container! Now I no longer sort paper into the brown bin and glass and plastic into the yellow bin. But I do wonder how much is ending up in a land fill with the rest of the trash....
