I found out Hy-Vee has a recycling bin outside their store and does not recycle their plastice bottles. What should our plan of action be?

How about minding your own business. How about leaving them alone. If I had a business and you came marching in telling me what to do I would call the police AND your school.

thanks for something that wasn't just cussing us out. it's easier to discuss things when there's an argument posed. the major problem with having a bin and not recycling what is put into it is that the practice is deceitful. if hyvee were to not have a bin at all, people interested in recycling could do it on their own. meanwhile, those trying to help the environment are fooled into thinking they're actually recycling what they're attempting to recycle. this isn't okay, and is something that should be addressed.
as far as invading on business practices, i'm not sure the police could do anything. the bill of rights prevents business owners from objecting when someone points out a bad practice, and if it's the truth, we couldn't be hit up for slander, either. as for our school, i think they're enough wrapped up in trying to balance the budget and still educate one or two of its students to worry about something as minor as this. administration couldn't censor anything anyway, and likely wouldn't have the desire, if this business practice is true.
in the end, the people reading this board and posting what we see as important messages are simply trying to make something a little better. it'd help if you objected to our issues with something constructive. if you disagree so wholeheartedly, it'd be a good idea to join campaigns against environmentalism and commit yourself to action rather than simply lighting fires and running away with anonymous posts to a tiny community.

It is true. I know because I work there and I've thrown the contents of the plastic recycling bin in the dumpster several times. It bothers me that they really don't recycle the plastic.
It's not like the bosses at Hyvee are evil, corporate greed-meisters who like spraying freon into the atmosphere for fun. But, they have been too busy smiling in every aisle (be the smile real or fake) to care about this issue.
(except me, I'm the one not smiling when you go in Hyvee, because I hate working there. I'll probably get fired for this. Oh, well, I just go work at Jones'.)

this sounds great, i think that laura and dan made excellent points and that deception is the issue here, so it is our duty as concerned citizens to exercise our first ammendment rights. go USD-ECO!!
