I hear that, as of August, those hateful blue recycling bins can be discarded (are they recyclable?) because Greenwich is switching to backyard pickup, in which everything: newspapers, tin, all kinds of plastic, (maybe cardboard and paper?) can be all jumbled together. That’s fine – it’ll be a little less of a pain in the ass – but the whole recycling movement is a fraud and a waste of time and money. Worse, it creates the impression among school children and naive adults that we’re “doing something” about the environment when we’re actually accomplishing nothing.
As Arlo said, “you want to end war and stuff you have to sing real loud”. Residential recycling is a mere whimper.
