The Slice

The sound of recycling

For city of Spokane residents accustomed to putting their trash and recycling out early on the morning of garbage day, the new blue barrels represent change.

Where the old bins could be carried to the curb in silence at 5 a.m., the new rolling barrels can be wake-the-dead loud if they contain a few dozen bottles.
