We read about the horse and wagons that drove around the streets going from trash bin to trash bin. Some people felt it was a good idea while others felt these folks left garbage on the sidewalks and in the streets and that in itself outweighed any good their recycling did.
On our walks I have noticed a good amount of trash left outside of the bins, but I have not been here long enough to really comment on it. Give me some time to look at both sides and I will get back to you.
There are many of these horse-drawn carts that ride down the street each day. They collect as you can see from the cart above, cardboard, looks like a kitchen appliance maybe an oven, plastics etc. I would hope that the recycling of the items outweighs the mess left behind. What would you think if they did this is your town?
