We live in a multi-unit building, in which no recycling program was in place. Residents (some) would place recyclables in bags, shove them in a spare communal courtyard "closet," and a few people would occasionally make runs to the nearest recycling center.
Finally, starting next week, we are shifting gears: one of our large trash bins will be designated for recycling and picked up on a weekly basis. The additional cost to the association was minimal, and the benefits will be great. We are wondering how all of you deal with recycling in your lives. Is there a system in place? Are you on your own? Did you forsake the ineffective blue bag program long ago?
