It's About Time

Blue Sentry

My street is lined with silent blue sentries, and this is a wonderful thing. Welcome to the 21st century, Shreveport! Curbside recycling is here.
For years, we have been painstakingly peeling labels off steel cans, rinsing out plastic bottles, piling newspapers in a box, breaking down cereal boxes, collecting aluminum cans and accumulating empty milk jugs. Then, once a month or so we would pile it all into the SUV and drop it off at the recycling center. (Hey, is there irony there?)
Now, as of this week, we just dump it all into the blue can and roll it out to the curb. It's nice to see the neighbors are on board, too. Next thing you know, I'll be buying a hybrid vehicle. Get blue to go green.
