As I was driving down my alley this morning I was astonished at what I saw. Today is pick up day for our city recyclables. And the number of residents I saw that didn't have blue bags or green recycle containers in the alley for pick up really started to tick me off. How hard is it to sperate your recyclables in your home? Is it pure laziness on the publics part? Good grief, if I can do it, then anyone can do it.
We throw about 3 bags of regular trash every 2 weeks in our home and throw about 3 bags of recyclables EVERY week out. Almost everything that us consumers use now days has a recycle code on it and then there is all the paper, junk mail and cardboard that our food is packaged in that is recyclable.
All it takes is another trash can in the home and you just have to throw trash in one and recycles in the other. It is not rocket science and most cities will take it all combined so you dont have to seperate anything. It is just 2 simple steps.
So come on people, wake up and protect our environment. If not for us then do it for the future generations.
