New Blue Recycling Bins in Hoboken
Perhaps plastic bags SHOULD be allowed in Hoboken!
As many of you already know – not only has Hoboken begun the experiment of “single stream” recycling each week, they’ve also added many blue recycling containers on the streets (albeit in strange places).
A few residents pointed out the latest hypocrisy out of City Hall. They mentioned that the city says that the recyclables are NOT to be put in bags, but rather directly into the bin (like having sex without a condom!)
However, we all know how sticky and messy that becomes, attracting all sorts of bugs, bees, and centipedes!
We’re guessing that the city feels the same way – and it clearly shows, by the plastic bags in THEIR OWN recycling bins!
Nice try – but we need more regular trash bins in Hoboken, too!
One of the complaints from residents near the top of the list over the past 5 years is: “Not enough trash bins” around town.
However, the City of Hoboken recently rolled out all these blue “recycling” bins at street corners all over the place. But if you look closely, and despite the small opening – along with the words “bottles and cans” on top – people don’t seem to care much. They’ll throw absolutely anything in these bins (due to the lack of regular bins).
And from what I was told, I believe that for this wacky “single stream” recycling program Hoboken is in – the city gets penalized for every ton of “unauthorized” refuse that gets carted off in the process. So the recycling company will be glad to take this stuff away!
