Plastic bag and some food wrappers
Styrofoam take-out box (first styrofoam of the year)
Paper cup and plastic lid (yep, didn’t bring the reusable mug out)
Yogurt container
3 k-cups from the Keurig

Recycled:
A couple of paper bags
Junk mail (yes, I take myself off as many lists as possible and get e-bills, yet it still keeps a-coming, grr…)
