The Trash

the trashMy dad is very into recycling bottles these days.  Five cents can add up to a couple of dollars and my dad does not like to let potential dollars pass him by.

Bottles are easy to find.  It seems as if no one recycles in NYC.  I’ve heard rumors that there is single stream recycling but looking around the city I know that there is a lot of trash that never makes it to a recycling center.

I heard that NYCHA does not recycle at all.  Word on the street is that they pay a fine for not recycling because it is cheaper than actually instituting a real recycling program.

It’s a missed opportunity because NYCHA could lead by example.  If the housing projects could recycle then any neighborhood could follow.
