Re: You Know you Live In An Upper Middle Class Neighborhood When...
It's actually kind of nice to see some additional emphasis being placed upon recycling. There seemed to be such a push in the 90's, yet cities were handing out those small recycling bins and picking up once a month (if that).
Now with a bin the size of its garbage counterpart, I know a few families who only take their recycling to the curb weekly and their garbage every other week, if that.
Surely it's but a small step, but props to the folks who have been able to move a lot of what we do toward being re-usable and giving us the means to make that happen. Hopefully more and more areas begin moving toward a more effective recycling system. I know many spots don't have pickups or only offer them once a month with small bins. I think that'll continue to change as time goes on.
