the bin is back

Posted on

through my efforts the new mixed container recycle bin has been deposited at our building. it wasn't a herculean effort. it just had to be done and required a little followthrough. i wrote a letter to the city who forwarded my message to waste management, who called me, whom i called back. simple as that.

what is interesting though, is to bear witness to how some people recycle. the other day when i came out of the building with my bag of mixed containers  to recycle, i happened across someone who was looking in the bins. thinking that it was a binner, i stood back and just let her go about her business. after she had looked in all three bins, including what turned out to be the completely empty mixed container bin, she chucked all her containers in the newsprint bin. it was then that i realized that it was a resident of my building. her whole m.o. baffled me. afterall, if she wasn't able to read the label of the bin, she had the graphic depiction to tell her which bin it was. still, she decided she was going to follow the lead of someone else who had deposited their recycling in the wrong bin instead of making an informed decision. 

in some respects, i really don't care what anybody else in the building does, as long as i have access to recycling. although, i don't understand why people wouldn't make an effort, and take more care when they do.
