Television commercials, newspaper,and radio advertising though costly for awhile WILL eventually stem the tide,and encourage all to recycle properly.IT WILL BE A GRADUAL TRANSITION !! But it has been working here in New York. Occasinally mentioning it to children in class rooms helps also. I know there are alot of laws already,We have one on the books here, it is a misdameanor to use others dumpsters without permission to dump your trash. It is called "THEFT OF SERVICE". it carries a fine,and up to one year in jail if convicted. Thanks for listening. Robert Brand

You need to use the clear or blue see through bag for recycling. This prevents your bin from beening contaminated by strangers. Most houses that have bins can't bring them in side their house because it's to big or it just smells bad. If you use the recycle bag with a Create Some Space Recycle Bag Holder you'll be set. This is already happening in other parts of the country with great success.
