I like it because I feel burning it and generating electricity is better than going into a landfill.

Default Best for the environment - and convenient

1) the pictures of the bodies is hilarious! Touché

2) I worked on a special project for my last employer (a company with a strong focus on the environment). As part of the project we spent three years studying the best recycling programs in the US and Canada - with a focus on the globe for innovation also. In the end, to our great surprise, we found out that the very best recycling program in terms of net negative impact on the environment was to put all trash and recycling products into a contained burner - which I believe is what we have down in the Fenney area. So I was excited to see that!

3) This method is so much easier, no endless sorting and no more arguing with my spouse about what can or can't be recycled - lol.

Love this system, easier for us and better for the environment

Big plus for me. Just throw everything in together and put it outside. No more sorting, no more cutting every plastic soda bottle carrier, no more questions of "is this recyclable"? What about this pizza box? Too greasy? Glass? Is this plastic thing good or bad?

Yup love it.

Over in the historic side, nothing has changed. We still have recycling once a week, trash pickup that day plus a second day each week. That means the garbage guy comes past our house three times every week, because he does a separate pass just for the recycling (even though it's on the same day as one of the trash pickups).

I'd be for consolidating all the trash, and incinerating it in a power plant. It wasn't an ecologically sound choice until technology caught up with waste management but now it is a good option.

Did you forget the "lawn waste" pickup once a week ... that's 1 more trip. Or don't they have that up there?

I’m happy with the process.
From another site, it was posted by a worker hoping people will be thoughtful & not overload the yard waste. When a household has an abundance of yard waste to place it over the 2 day pick up. Maybe we could also help these hard working guys by bundling with twine when possible or bagging.

Less trucks in the neighborhoods is a good thing. Our villa is a madhouse with the lawn guys, the bug guys, the trash pickup, the crown molding guys, the flooring guys, the landscapers, etc, etc.

So if it generating electricity why didn’t our pickup rates go down?
