Recycle this

In a letter to the editor in todays The Chronicle, Warren M. from Beaconsfield QC wrote in a rather depressing siting from the Canada Day celebration at Centennial Park. Apparently much to his delight, blue recycling boxes were placed beside most of the trash bins, which in itself should make people a little happier about what our cities are doing for us. That delight then turned to disbelief after the days festivities ended. After a group went around and removed all the aluminum cans so they could most likely be recycled, “I watched the cleanup staff emptying the recycling boxes into the gargabe bags”, wrote Warren.

It would appear that there was no intention of the city of Beaconsfield ever actually recycling the days waste, or was there? Perhaps the city had god intentions and the staff just could care about our cities and our planet? Quite frankly, this makes me question any recycling boxes that city now puts out. What sort of guarantee do we have that the city is not just putting out the blue bins for show?
