Jul 28, 2009 in Society
This society scares me. Just the other day I went to my friendly neighbourhood Save-On Foods to pick up some milk, eggs, cheese, lunch meat, and several bags of chips: potato, taco, and sun. For a change of pace, I went through the Changes Recycling Centre in the middle of the store.
My eye caught a sign plastered to the middle of the door, at the level of my nose, advising customers that they would not accept any bags with ants in them.
I was at first shocked, because in B.C. the correct protocol when returning recyclables is to be sure to rinse them first. Did customers really need to be told to look out for ants?
