Recycling Update

It's Wednesday, August 11th, and recycling day in Woodvale.  I drove through the neighborhood this morning around 7:30 and counted 13 recycling bins at the curbs.  So it appears the recycling effort has stabilized with no significant changes in the number of households recycling.

I signed up for the full package, so I am very pleased to be able to report that my wife and I have recycled 890 pounds of stuff.  That's not bad for a household of two plus the dog!  According to RecycleBanks web page that means we've saved a tree and 113 gallons of oil.  More importantly, I think, that means 890 pounds of stuff that did not go into a landfill.

I hope everyone in Woodvale will seriously consider recycling.  I believe it is a win-win situation for everyone and it is not very expensive to do.  Go to RecycleBank to sign up.
