Driving down a near St. Joseph College this morning, I noticed that just about every one of the blue recycling bins lining the road looked awful. They’re faded, cracked or clearly broken.
I don’t know how long it’s been since these bins were replaced, but it’s pretty clear that the town needs to get new bins out there to people. Mine looks pretty bad, too, come to think of it.
It doesn’t speak well of the seriousness of our recycling effort when the bins look like trash — and many of them are overflowing as well. Next time around, at least give people the option to get bigger bins, or more of them.
