Yeah--We're in the Pilot!

In the mail yesterday, we received notification from the City of Rochester that our neighborhood would be part of an upcoming Single Stream Recycling pilot. Currently, we are required to separate out select recyclables into paper and plastic/glass containers (or, in most cases, the city's sanitation staff need to do so when emptying the containers). As a family that generates more recyclable waste (including compostable waste which we pay a fee to have picked up weekly by Community Composting, Inc.) than "garbage," this is exciting news as we continue looking for ways to minimize our footprint.

It is great to see our local municipality continuing to pilot (with an eye towards wide-spread implementation) ways to make recycling easier and more convenient!
