What are we supposed to do with our recycling “Blue Bins”?

The last blue bin pick up came and went at our house today and, staring at the big blue chunk of plastic I was struck with the question of what to do with it. It doesn’t look recyclable, my garbage man probably won’t take it, so do I take it to the dump? If all 15,000 Greenwich households make a separate trip to the dump to get rid of these things, won’t that cause more pollution than the recycling program is supposed to prevent? Just asking.

    Just keep using your blue bins. It doesn’t matter. They are saying you need something with a closed top to prevent fly away paper but it doesn’t matter.

    Use it to hold ammo for your potato cannon.

    My first thought was “there goes the low end real estate market.” These new green cans (or dumpsters-lite) are large enough to house a small family.

    Cut them up and put them in the new recycling bin

    Planters? Collect a couple of em and fill em with dirt and plan some vegies in them or flowers.

    Oh, oh! Fill em with concrete! stack’em them. Harder Homes and Garden’s, the magazine of thrifty survivalists will approve!
