<strong>Dear Recycle Lady,<\/strong>\r\n\r\nAfter the Super Bowl was over, T-shirts were immediately available for sale imprinted with the champion\u2019s name and logo. Thus, there must have been two sets of T-shirts printed; one with each team named as champion. What happens to the set of T-shirts that have the loser\u2019s name printed as the champion?\r\n\r\n<em>Curious<\/em>\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n<strong>Dear Curious,<\/strong>\r\n\r\nA reader wrote a similar question to the Parade\u2019s Ask Marilyn column last Sunday. Marilyn\u2019s answer was that the loser\u2019s T-shirts are sent to an international aid group that distributes them to impoverished countries and places that have had a disaster. Three cheers for the Super Bowl officials that authorized reusing these T-shirts instead of trashing them.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n<strong>Dear Recycle Lady,<\/strong>\r\n\r\nWe buy maple syrup in a plastic bag that looks like foil inside. How can we recycle this bag?\r\n\r\n<em>Foil or Not Foil<\/em>\r\n\r\n<em>\u00a0<\/em>\r\n\r\n<strong>Dear Foil or Not Foil,<\/strong>\r\n\r\nYour maple syrup bag sounds like some potato chip and cracker bags: they look like aluminum foil, but they aren\u2019t. Do a quick test to see if the bag is actually foil by crumpling the bag up in your hand. If it is aluminum foil, the bag will remain crumpled. If the bag unfolds, you know it is not aluminum foil and it will not recycle. Your bag probably will not recycle. Perhaps your maple syrup comes in another type of container that is recyclable or, hopefully, in the future in a refillable container.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n<strong>Dear Recycle Lady,<\/strong>\r\n\r\nJunk mail often contains not only paper, but it also may contain address labels or advertisements on glossy paper or \u201cslicks.\u201d Do these slicks need to be removed before I put the entire envelope in recycle? What about the address labels?\r\n\r\n<em>Slicks Remover<\/em>\r\n\r\n<strong>\u00a0<\/strong>\r\n\r\n<strong>Dear Slicks Remover,<\/strong>\r\n\r\nYes, these slicks must be removed before the envelope and contents are put in with paper. The slicks are put with magazines. Some envelopes are also on slick paper and they must also go in with magazines. I use a letter opener to slice open the top of the envelope, then pull out any slicks and address labels, and recycle the rest. This process doesn\u2019t require much time once you are accustomed to it. If you are a recycler, but don\u2019t have the time to open the envelopes and remove the slicks, just put the unopened envelopes in with the magazines, unless they contain address labels, which must be removed as they are not recyclable. If unopened envelopes are put in with the office paper and they have slicks in them, the slicks will contaminate the office paper they are bundled with.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nHave questions about recycling, or interesting information about recycling?
