Recycling: Life in Baltimore is about to get a little easier

Soon you won't have to check the calendar every Sunday night, only to find out that there's no bottle/can pickup this week — and then forget to check back on Thursday to see if it's paper week.

From today's Baltimore Sun:

Starting Jan. 8 in city, everything goes to the curb on same day

Starting in January, the city will begin collecting all recyclable material - bottles, cans, paper and cardboard - in a single container, eliminating the complicated schedule in which residents place bottles and cans at the curb on one day, and paper and cardboard on another.

My understanding is that the one day will be the current paper day. I'm glad for that, because we seem to miss a lot of bottles/cans days due to Monday holidays.

The easier (and more consistent) it is, I think the more participation we'll get.

Yay for recycling!
