he he we just moved over from those ones to the door-collection boxes here, or at least in my town. We still have the big communal ones too, but they are like dumpsters now with labels, and they are locked into a cage so they don't get stolen. They can't lift the tops like a dumpster unless you are the collection people.
we now have a plastic box for glass, another for paper and cans, and a brown wheely bin for "garden waste" in every house. People are lazy. they won't bother to recycle if it's easier to throw in the trash.
Also, it mean someone now has a job who wouldn't before... combats unemployment and means we don't have to pay as much taxes because less people need the Dole. Or that woudl be true if there are enough jobs from it, i don't know.
They have paper-recycle boxes in my school now too... that is a good idea. Schools waste too much paper.
