Blue Bin success.
My weekly garbage and recycling collection this morning in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood came with a delivery on the back end.
When my dear wife Karen left for work, she poked her head back into the Little Bitty and declared, “the new blue bins are here!”
After two months of overstuffing our one remaining, cracked recycling bin with paper, glass, plastic and cans — and the same amount of phone calls to the city to arrange delivery — here we have them.
To avoid swipeage, as both I and the nice man on the other end of both of my calls surmised was the fate of our first delivery of bins, I’ve Sharpied our address on the side of the bins not facing my iPad Air when I took the photo above.
By the way, I also threw the Photo101 tag on this update because, well, I tried to get a nice angle on the shot as well as my conclusion of our tale.
Here’s the link to my post about my Blue Bin frustrations.
All’s well that ends well? Two bins in my hand are worth more than all of the neighbors across the way in the bushes? Five pennies saved by the pickers who take the refundable cans we toss in our Blue Bins is five pennies of good karma earned for MDW Karen and I?
