    I think we should vote for more and more laws and give more and more money to the government until everyone thinks exactly alike or has do die broke while the corporations that handle recyclables reap huge profits, all for the cost of advertising to make us feel guilty. http://www.treehugger.com/sustainabl...ycles-day.html

    Close your trash bin door. A lot of litter is caused by birds picking trash out of open bins.

    I just moved to Houston - which is like the 4th largest city in the USA - and I cannot believe how absolutely pathetic the recycling is here.

    I grew up in Syracuse, NY. A modest city in central NY, and sometime in the early 90's, the city and suburbs around it gave 2 blue bins to every single residence in the greater Syracuse area for recycling. The garbage truck came on Tuesday, then a separate recyclables truck came Wednesday. That was 20 years ago.

    How is it, that now, recycling is not ubiquitous? Not just in cities, but across the entire country - nay, the entire goddamn world?

    Wait, I know why... $$$$$$. Cities or counties or towns or whatever will say "we can't afford to pay people to go around and pick them up, or for new trucks, or for disposal of them." What a crime. Also what a bunch of BS.

    We moved from Knoxville, which had ample curbside pickup for residences, but also a fair amount of public drop-off centers given the size of it being a relatively small city.

    Houston is HUGE, but the number of facilities is small, and they are far from convenient for 90% of the cities population. Here's a map of them, it's ridiculous: http://www.houstontx.gov/solidwaste/recycling_map.html

    I can't believe sheer laziness and apathy (not just of the people in charge of setting up programs like this) but also of the general population continues to destroy the planet.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    "Properly disposed of" usually means getting dumped miles out at sea. Look it up, its pretty much common practice.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Tell me more about this. I dispose of "sharps" (needles and syringes) in a sealed canister which I then take to a doc's office for disposal.

    If I am doing something wrong I wantnto know about it.

    You're not doing anything wrong, the doctors and the companies that claim "safe disposal practices" are the ones at fault. Here's just one link, there are many more, just google it.
