I live in the 4th ward and it apparently works here. Plastic bins would be easier, but the alleys would be a mess.

Yes we do recycle. It's due however to our buildings recycling bins for different items, rather than the blue bag campaign.

At least as often as the GB recycles its Fuel questions....

Andrew / March 22, 2005 10:42 AM

Yeah, I just realized we did this one in October. Forgive me, there are only 238 Fuel questions to keep track of.

Ah, grin and bear it, Andrew -- you have to admit that of all the topics to recycle, this one was downright funny/ironic/whatever....
