Good morning, Roy... here in our area, they have started eliminating the small recycling bins and are going totally to the big bins (which we've used for years and love).

Good morning Roy.  I think it's important that we recycle as much as possible.

We have been recyling for over 20 years in my area.   Not hard when you get used to it. Now it is just second nature.
