pimp my bin


perhaps if similar products took hold in the u.s., recycling would become even more chic? a recent visit to the burbs reminded me that our town's recycling program is somewhat extraordinary. less than half an hour outside the blueberry (proper), recycling is only picked up if you formally opt into the program and purchase your own bins. really??? shouldn't there be some sort of profit model to benefit municipalities...besides the dirty hippie altruism factor?

Maybe we could donate our old blue bins to those who could use them, instead of having to put them in the landfills. I still can't believe that we can't recycle our old recylcing bins. Nuts!
