Recycle bins

In the course of my wanderings these past few months, I came across a pair of recycle bins that just begged to be partnered. The first was this fine collection of soda pop cans down at the Birdsong Creek marina in Tennessee which I visited with TONFM (The Other Niece from Memphis). The big surprise? All that Mountain Dew; for overseas readers, MD is a lemon-lime soft drink concoction. I had thought that the South was Dr. Pepper country, but I don't see any below.

And here's the similar bin, over at the local upper crust Goodwill store on SR69. Don't weep for the decline in literacy that this might represent -- these titles are the same sort of stuff that one multi-story second hand bookstore in Chicago used to sell for 5 cents a pound.

I wouldn't want to give Goodwill a bad rap for denigrating the printed word. The more respectable reading matter (i.e., more likely to sell) is available on neat shelves at the back of the store.

Germany is big on recycling. They even have separate bins for different colored glass.

steve -- the city doesn't even pick up glass here -- Prescott College has the only glass recycling bin that I'm aware of.

anon av -- sometimes wonderful combos just drop into one's lap -- as this pair did.
