ECO PRO : McDonald's recycling station

I've been talking about this for a while now, and I'm happy to see it come to life. Finally! Fast food restaurants are starting to recycle... Well at least the McDonald in Casselman, ON. Hopefully, it's not the only one.

I used to complain (and still am) about the fact that many fast food restaurants have recyclable food containers but have no place to recycle them. What's the point of using these containers if there are no places in the restaurant to recycle them? Most people won't bring them home. So they end up in a landfill anyway.

It would be great to see recycling stations in all fast food restaurants. Better yet, it would be nice to see them use biodegradable containers like the ones from Verterra among others. There are so many choices nowadays.

The next thing would be to have composters along side (even instead of) trash cans. Now that would definitely help reduce landfill problems and help the environment! In fact why not have composters in the kitchen of all restaurants? I wonder what's keeping them from doing this. It seems like it would be rather easy to implement. Can you imagine how much waste would disappear if all fast food restaurants used biodegradable containers and all restaurants were using composters in their restaurants?
