Recology Revolt


My community is having conniption fits over our new waste management company. As much as I hate to admit it, I am too.

The cans are HUGE and tipsy and I have a terrible time controlling them when they are full and I have to wheel them down our driveway. If I get in front I fear it will mow me down and when I hold on from the back it pulls me making my terminally sprained ankle scream. Ours is a community of hills and I'm in fairly decent shape and not THAT old! How are our real seniors doing this I wonder?

The size of them is crazy, they look awful out there in front of the house so I'm hiding them in some bushes and behind one fence (there are 2 monsters the recycle one and the green waste one). Don't forget the usual garbage can either!
The man in the photo makes it look so clean and easy doesn't he?

Help! I just had to gripe a little.

The size is one think, but what gets me is all the gnats (or are they tiny fruit flies?) that swarm out of the green waste. I like the idea of all that we can recycle now. What I want to know is how is all that paper/plastic/glass/metal sorted?

I understand that is an issue the community is talking about. I don't have a clue!!! So thankful it's not me doing it though.
