but if you stick with it, it'll become quite a routine procedure. Remember, each of the four different types of
garbage listed in the trash collection area goes in to a different receptacle. Papers go into the green box, cans
and bottles go in the blue box, soft recyclable plastics such as candy wrappers and food containers go in the yellow box,
and food waste should be put in the red box. If we can take home these habits even better but let's start by making
every effort in the office.
