"You can't just throw your couch on the curb and leave it there for a month," Curry said.

Why not? All the hookers need a comfortable place to ply their trade during the hot, humid weather. Nothing like one of those "genuine simulated zebra-striped naugahyde-vinyl combos" to spice up an event.

Many of the drug dependent, homeless types need a comfortable place to rest and read last week's Sentinel.

Curry should keep his yap shut and consider all those less fortunate. They got rights, too.

It is good to see this program making headway. The containers that were provided make the recycling process much better than the small containers we used to have and allow us the ability to recover even more material.

The article made a point in emphasizing that the same groups of people that didn't comply with the older program aren't complying now, and that isn't really a surprise. Those are the same people that have us volunteers cleaning up their neighborhoods every year because they are animals and they care nothing about anyone but themselves.

Hopefully they will see that it is quite simple to put the item in the "other container" instead of the one their using. Very little effort, but a big help for our environment.
