Changing tune on bin

I was one of the loudest complainers about that big blue bin. Where would we store it? Who has that many things to recycle in a week? Blah, blah.

Well, I’ve since changed my tune! We fill the blue bin almost to the top every week, and have been able to replace our big brown bin with one half that size, which saves us money, too. When people get the hang of how many things they are able to recycle, they’ll see this as we do and save money at the same time.
