Now that the recycling program has become a regular part of our routine, it's the opposite. Now, we rarely fill even one dumpster with trash, and sometimes we could actually use a second recycle bin.

September 11th, 2001 is a date that none of us are likely to forget. I remember I was on the air that morning filling in for someone, and the news was hard to believe. All of us around the station were kind of numb with shock just trying to get our heads around the tragedy, and keep it together enough to relay the information on the air.

How is Curbside Recycling Affecting Your Home?

Curbside recycling came to our fair city just a few short months ago, and based on what happens in our home, it has made a huge difference. First of all, we have 3 teenage boys, 2 adults, and a few dogs and cats living in our house, but to tell you the truth, there may be a few I don't even know about. Pets, that is. The point being, that we used to throw away quite a lot of trash. So much in facr, that we opted to pay the extra $5 a month to have an additional trash bin to use.
