378 people have signed up for curbside recycling. if you are not one of them, read this post and do the fun experiment noted below!
some people get caught up on the $6 monthly fee. i think of it like this: $6 per month is a small price to pay for someone to come to your house, pick up your trash, sort it out, and make it into something useful. it also helps make the world a more healthy and clean place for you and your children to live.
by the way, the approved program allows you to mix all your recyclable materials together.
still unsure? try the following experiment. for the next day or two, put aside everything you would normally throw away that is found on the following list. at the end of the day (or two), look at what you have put aside and visualize the volume of material you could recycle in a week, a month, a year.
if at that point you are not racked with a horrible sense of guilt every time you toss a cereal box or empty soup can in the trash, i'd say you have no conscience and are too hardened for me to ever persuade.
