Recycle and Keep It Local

One of the best things about getting recycling bins out on Elmwood (other than the recycling part) is that a local crew was paid to design and build them. That means that these recycle bins are totally different than any of the other bins anywhere. It also means that some of the bin designs actually coincide with the neighboring storefronts. Take, for example, the one featured in this photo (Tyler and Mark Griffis stand behind it along with Kyle Mackiewicz). A couple of canines are featured on the front – maybe that’s because Sonny’s Doggie Bakery is located a couple of doors down. And on the side? A couple of skateboarders on their way to work are displayed. Each skateboarder is even carrying a briefcase – I’m sure that Sunday Skate loves the dedication.
Regardless of what each of the bins is displaying, it’s just good to know that the devices are now out on the avenue. Let’s hope that people can figure out that they are not just garbage cans and actually serve a recycling purpose.
