Trash Cans & Recycle Bins

Photo by Gary Bridgman

The City is changing its rules for trash collection. This story in the Commercial Appeal states that people who need a second bin must soon pay $5 per month extra.

The article states, "The new program could also encourage recycling since there will now be a cost for extra waste."

I hope this is true. Ever since the City started allowing curbside recycling of cardboard, greyboard, paper (including junkmail), newspapers, magazines, etc. I have had a very hard time filling up my big green bin. In fact, I had to request a second recycling bin.

In California the recycling bins are the size of our trash bins.
