Re: Manistique on a hot Sept day
That is a really good idea Mark...except, the mill does not use just any recycle stock. They use only craft waste, and they ship only craft, as I understand the process. Basic recycled paper includes newsprint, waste white bond, plastic windows from those envelopes the electric company sends you as well as the lick em glue to send the envelope back. And the clay that makes magazine covers nice and shiny. How about those staples...iron.. that rust and muck up the process. There is a small mountain of waste from the "old" process out north east of Manistique of junk from "recycled paper" used at the mill before it went belly up. New process; very little junk.
Now if we can get "people" to sort their paper, remove the plastic, remove the staples, remove the plastic sandwich bag...how did "that" get in there. Try the sorting for 30 days, and see what comments your better half give you.
