If I ignore wife’s recycling errors, she won’t learn


Dear Amy: My wife and I have been married for eight years. We’ve always shared household chores, which has worked well.

Columnist Amy Dickinson (Bill Hogan/Chicago Tribune) 

She recently put her career on hold to focus on our two small children, and she is an amazing mother.

My only complaint is her apathy toward recycling. I’m constantly picking recyclables out of the trash and trash out of the recycling bin.

Recyclables that do make it into the correct bin are often contaminated with food waste which, I’ve read, gum up sorting and processing machines.

I’ve gently reminded her of the proper way to handle recyclables, but I am usually met with a “whatever” attitude or dismissive comment about “washing garbage.”
