Recycling, the blue recycling bin, is possibly the worst environmental blow to hit Toronto Ė and maybe your city Ė in the past thirty years. ďItís not garbageĒ is a perpetual cry from the environmental side. In these pages I will bring you examples of WHY this ďBlue BinĒ mentality should be stopped. Sadly, Iíll be competing against an entrenched multi-million dollar program of indoctrination.
Here is a Sunbeam Model Drip-maker pulled from the recycle bin.
I plugged the cable into a wall socket and saw the machine light up, so I figured that it was getting power.
Here it is plugged in and ready-to-go, with the old $2 DeLongho maker in the background. When the lid broke on that, the manufacturerís supply company ripped me off for $18. Never again!
The Sunbeam did not arrive with a re-usable filter, so I have made a temporary filter from a piece of linen.
The spigot rotates out of the way, so I place my cloth, add two teaspoons of ground coffee and let Ďer rip!
Thatís drip coffee being made right before my eyes.
No repairs needed.
And hereís my first mug, just SEVEN MINUTES after plugging in the maker, Iíve got it all worked out.
And it works.
So what was wrong with it?? I donít yet know. It lacks a filter basket, or else requires an endless-supply of special coffee filter cones, which Iím not prepared to buy.
Once I obtain a copy of the manual Iíll check out all the programmable buttons ...
