Our society needs to change its mindset. I have 3 huge green bins for regular trash that a automated truck comes through and locks into and picks up for the dump. THe driver never gets out of his cab.
For recycle I have 5(!) small bins. I usually have one bag in my trash bin and my recycles bins are stacked higher and overflowing onto the street. The recycle truck dirver has to get out and pick it all up by hand. Seems to me it should be the other way around. I need two big green bins for my recycle!!!!
