On Wednesday afternoon I made a quick trip to the Pea Ridge recycling bins. Although I was skeptical about changing over from our monthly recycling gathering to this arrangement of bins on trailers, the system seems to be working well, and the area around the trailers is reasonably clean. I’m glad to see that the recycling of goods is catching on. It is good also to see that markets are opening up for many materials that otherwise would clutter our highway ditches and overwhelm our landfills. I’ll be glad if a market can be created for Styrofoam.
