Last Saturday, the hubbinator and I took the cans we’d collected for the last several months down to the recycling center. I remember the first time that we found the place. Hardly anyone used it and the lot was mostly empty.

This time I had to sneak in the back way and cram the truck in between dumpsters (and inadvertently blocked the trailer scale, too).

The place was packed.

And not just with vehicles. The homeless/near-homeless had shown up with the hand carts, bikes, boxes and bags, and  shopping carts to cash in.

One guy sorted plastic bottles from aluminum cans. Another piled bits of metal he’d collected. While a third compiled the pieces of wire into a pile sometimes pulling them out of his collection of fans and lights as he went.

And while we were only there with our cans, I heard the other day that about 98% of cars are recycled. Why can’t we achieve the same with our other consumer goods? We obviously have a self-motivated, self-employed workforce who is willing to step up. Just saying.

Until next time.
