If it ain't about politics or homosexuality, no one will ever get it...or care to. They'd rather have a bunch of Tim Horton's than some big recycling center.

Someone explained to me a long time ago from the garbage department that their station is much too small to handle all these items - paper, metal, box board (cereal/pasta/soda) boxes, etc."

WOW - as far as I know Jamestown takes all the items Fowler mentioned. Just wondering what he is trying to say?? "Recycling nut" is a very fitting description.

Is it just me, or did the second sentence in the last paragraph make no sense at all?

Try the "Transfer Station" in Falconer for all of your Recycling needs! 'Land Fills Are US!'

This entire letter makes no sense. Seems to me the BPU does a pretty good job picking up the recyclables. If you don't want them to clutter up your porch, put them in the basement or garage. What exactly is the compliant here?

Another example of tree huger mumbo jumbo. Last I looked trees are a renewable resource

And Marchhare, my favorite squatter, what's not to understand about it? It makes perfect sense to me. Of course it wouldn't to a bunch of couch quarterbacks who see fit to criticize every thing they see. No wonder no one wants to come to your area and dole out decent jobs.

And Scals..your "as far as I know, trees are a renewable source"...is this your excuse for destroying the Earth? Hmm? How many trees have you renewed this year? This decade? This century?

Sounds like to me if some of you don't have beyond a sixth grade education. When you're not allowed to think your mind turns to mush. Mushy, 6th grade thinking.

I've been told that the paper in magazines and newspaper is reused after the ink on the paper is washed off by some sort of solution. That must be pretty strong solution. What happens to this ink filled solution when they are done with it? Into a lake somewhere? Why not just save time and throw the paper in the lake?

There is one thing you know for sure when it comes to recyclables. Somebody, somewhere is getting rich. And they are probably laughing at all of us while we are washing out our milk jugs.

What's not to get? Cant a person have an opinion without being branded stupid? The recycling system in Jamestown needs fixing much like other things. I got the gist of the second sentence if his last paragraph. How marvelous our stores are able to buy and build new stores on tight profits

Why is it strange to need to place all recyclables at the curb? I didn't think people wanted cockroaches, ants and rats running around their homes, or am I mistaken? Would it be ok to only take garbage on certain weeks of the month, say the first and third?

Jazzie. Special. Jazzie. Go ask art samples how many trees we plant each year. Our home is in the woods you idiot. Trees have a funny way of replanting themselves. Look a few years after a forest fire. Mother earth has been taking care of her self for thousands of years.

Funny though, scallywag: Do you have a life size tree growing through your house? Trees do not grow through pavement, nor do they grow through buildings that people have claimed for themselves, 'you idiot'.
