Well, OK, I signed up for one of the new recycling carts, mostly because it would be a pain to deal with stacks of old newspapers without participating. And there's a bonus!
Residents may keep their current yellow and brown bins, reuse them for another purpose, or after receiving their new recycling cart, may leave their bins on the curb and crews will collect them within 72 hours.
Let's see. Turned upside down, the bins would make nice end tables. Or I could put them on their sides and use them as bookshelves. Oooh, oooh, wait! If I place them a little bit apart, joined with a board on top, I'd have a dinintable. Of course, then I'd have to find another use for my fancy felt-topped table with the built-in cup holders and the pot passers.
