Some may wrongly believe I’m against recycling, especially if you’ve read my last few posts on the matter. However, this isn’t the case. I’m very much for recycling, just not my garbage.
This week the City of San Antonio puts some of that tax money that I send them to use. Monday begins “bulky-item” pick up. This service includes such things as old washing machines, water heaters, worn-out couches, and pretty much anything except brush. Not only does the City come by to pick up my “useless” items, so do scavengers.
Yesterday, I placed out to be picked up an old metal filing cabinet and my front gutter (aka - leaf catcher). I had to cut the gutter into sections with shears to make it somewhat easy to collect. Today those items are gone! Instead of sitting in some landfill, I have (proudly, mind you) recycled those items.
Transactions costs = zero! Taxpayer money involved = zero! Lesson in recycling = priceless!
