So I try to be a good environmental citizen and recycle. Ok, well I try to recycle if it's not too much of an inconvenience.
When we moved in, I asked the guy who used to live in our apartment about recycling and he commented that yes, there was curbside pickup, but that someone had stolen their bin.
It took me two months, but on Monday I finally stopped by the Highway Department and paid $5 for a recycle bin. Tuesday was pickup day, so I put it out on the street filled with newspapers and a couple of other things (bottles and jars) that we had hanging around.
I came home late from work last night and the trash barrels had already been brought back to behind the house where they are kept. I asked Chris where the recylce bin was and he didn't know. (We figured the neighbors might have moved it. Sometimes our neighbors will bring back all the trash barrels back and sometimes we do. Really just varies on who comes home first.)
So this morning, before I left for work, I checked behind the house where the trash cans live. No recycle bin. SOMEONE TOOK MY BRAND NEW RECYCLE BIN! Why would you take that? I'll ask the neighbors when I get home if they know anything about it.
Part of me almost thinks that they took it, but why would they take it? Why would anyone take it? It even had our address written on it. And I'm really not in a mood to go pay for another bin just so that that one can be taken.
Just needed to vent about this one. I'll try to post an update after I ask the neighbors.
