Just a reminder that today marks the beginning of a new era in Brattleboro trash and recycling history. As of today, recycling is being picked up every week.
No more does anyone have to wonder if this week is the right week to put out the recycling. Every week is the right week.
No longer will recycling bins be filled to epic proportions while waiting for recycling day. Weekly pickup will make it easy to keep the bin filled to a manageable level.
This is something I've been looking forward to for a long time, and believe will help people by making recycling even easier by making it more regular.
Curbside compost pickup is also getting underway, and I'm looking forward to hearing how people are using it. We've been discussing a rearragement of indoor bins and sorting at our place, and making a list of the few things that must still go in the trash. It seems easier than looking at lists of what to recycle and compost, since so much can go in that direction now.
Maybe our slogan should be: Brattleboro - Classy Trash.
(Yeah, I'm setting you all up with that one, I know...)
Anyhow, a round of applause for weekly recycling and crubside compost pickup. Let's see what we can accomplish with it.
