I've just learned that our only recycling facility is closing next week because the city couldn't decide how/whether to continue subsidizing it. The next closest one that I know of is an hour away, and the only time we go that way is when we're on our way to the grandparents and the car is already full of luggage, so realistically it's probably going in the trash for now .

Does anyone have any experience (success?) petitioning their city to start a recycling program? What about private recycling options? I don't even know where recyclables go after I drop them in the bins, so I don't know where to start in thinking about private recycling.
