An Armchair Mayor editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
IMAGINE, if you will, a household recycling bin. We all have them, right?
We take a pop can and toss it into the bin, because we can return them and get some money back.
Now, imagine a second bin. We take a plastic shopping bag (we shouldn’t use them, but we all do) and toss it in.
Two separate bins. It’s called separation of recyclables. Yet that second bin has a lot of people in a lather.
