How about homeless peole looking for bottles to recycle? Wendy
In previous neighborhoods, there were people whom I called
who would come along before the recycle truck and go through people's
recycle bins looking for redeemable containers. I didn't see any in
this neighborhood for a long time, but a year or so ago I saw someone
doing it. When I think of it, I try to save redeemable containers and
put them on the top of the recyclables in the bin so they can get them
They check for that here too. If they find any you can be fined. I
they would fine you for a single bottle or can. But if it is too many
certainly will. At times they reward people for doing it right.
I think you may be missing the meaning of my term, "pre-sorters." These
are very poor people who look for redeemable cans and bottles so they
can redeem them and make some money.
There is nothing one can redeem here.
You may have posted this before Julie pointed out that bottle bills
aren't needed so much there, since people weren't throwing out
recyclables. That's the whole point of bottle bills -- to keep people
from dropping cans and bottles on the side of the road or sending them
to the landfill. If they aren't engaging in those behaviors but instead
recycling them already, there's no need for a bottle bill.
