Apparently there is a service here that will pick up your recyclables at your door for $20 a month. This is because the city does not do this for apartments and condos. Yea, why didn't I think of this business idea indeed?
But again I'm not signing up for another $20 monthly bill right now being unemployed and all, even if I know it is better for the environment (it would be better for the environment because I'd be more motivated to get 100% of the recycling than I am currently when I already have giant piles of the stuff piling up in my place!) Sigh, it's very expensive being green! Maybe if they also did composting it would seem more worth it.
