On Thursday we put our recycling at the road.
A city truck comes by and picks it up sometime in the morning.
There is mandatory garbage and recycling pick-up in our community and we are billed accordingly...
though we are exempt from the garbage portion since we have a bin on the farm.
All cardboard, plastics, glass and tin cans are recycled...
and placed at the roadside in a blue bin or a blue bag.
I think recycling is a great idea.
And I love to see folks picking up bottles and cans along the road.
They help themselves and they clean up the environment.
I'm not so sure how I feel about people helping themselves to the recyclables I place at the road!
I glanced out the window a few weeks ago...
and saw someone going through our recycling bag.
He removed some items and placed them in his own bag.
I did a quick mental inventory of what might have been in my bag.
Somehow it didn't feel right.
What do you think?
Is everything at the curb free for the taking?
This I know...there was nothing of value in my blue bag.
I guess he has a good thing going on Thursdays...
cycling and re-cycling at the same time!
