The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

I walked in my neighborhood this morning, instead of the Ridge. It was good, bad, and ugly. The good thing was that there was a great breeze out today, which as very nice in the heat. The bad and the ugly was that it is garbage day in the neighborhood, which smelled bad and looked ugly. Why do people produce so much Trash?

Now I must admit that I have three cans out for trash pickup, but the two big cans are full of yard waste-weeds, sticks, pruning, and trash I pick up from the street. The small can has one kitchen sized bag in it.

First of all, most people here do not recycle. The city tried to have curbside pick up but so many people complained about it that it was stopped. It's embarrassing to me that my city is so lazy and selfish. I recycled before this venture and I still recycle. I just have to load up the car and drive it to the recycling plant myself.

Unfortunately, my local recycling business has stopped taking glass. They could not find a buyer close enough to break even. That is very sad.

It's only a matter of time before recycling makes it to every nook and cranny of a town. Nice pics!
