“Recycling” in Washington

I read with interest Ms. [Emma] Pearson’s letter (“We’re wasting our waste,” May 13).

Being new to Washington from California, I am disappointed in Washington for their recycling efforts. There seems to be more “can’t recycle that” than that which we can recycle. Although California is lacking in many other ways, its recycling program is far and beyond that of Washington. If the state got up to speed, I am sure the citizens would follow.
