Let’s make recycling easier

I would just like to say that there is a serious need for bottle recycling bins all over Red Deer.

I would just like to say that there is a serious need for bottle recycling bins all over Red Deer.

I am a mom of three, and we visit the parks on a daily basis. Why not have a blue bin at every park, so we do need to throw away juice boxes, water bottles, etc.

I hate throwing them in the garbage, and most times I will leave them on the top of the garbage so that someone can add it to their collection. I am pretty sure that Red Deer will not have to empty these bins for there are a lot of people who “collect” them from our garbages.

I would also love to see them at the gas stations as well because I usually clean my car out while pumping gas, and would love to recycle. I know that I could just keep them in my car till I get home, but on the same note, why is there not more recycling bins around this city? Especially where there is alot of traffic.

That is just my opinion.
