Recycling woes!

What was up with the bottles & cans pickup this week? We had several bags because the last pickup date fell on Veteran's Day -- so no pickup. We called 311, and left the bags out today. I hope they came!

The city clearly needs more resources for this. When I was driving home on Moravia Road last night at 5:30, I had to wait for a backup to clear: a trash truck on one side of the road, and a city-owned pickup truck on the other, all gathering recycling from the curb.

i've never really felt that baltimore takes the whole recycling thing seriously anyway. if they did, they would collect more frequently. many people don't bother with it because it requires that you keep a stock pile and then have to keep track of the collection schedule.

THIS JUST IN .... i just checked the older posting about recycling and saw the comment about the recycling schedule changing in '08.
hopefully this new schedule will work better. but now people will have a larger pile of bottles and cans , no?
