Green bins are easy to use and good for the environment

Dear Editor,

I donít understand why residents are having such a difficult time wrapping their heads around Airdrieís green bins.

The City of Airdrie is kindly asking people to reduce and recycle A) to benefit our environment which yes, directly effects you and B) to be fiscally responsible. Yet you complain that you werenít asked if this was OK with you? With archaic mindsets as such we would still be burning our Styrofoam and plastic in a burn barrel in our backyards.

We are being ďforcedĒ to the tune of a little more than $5 a month (to be reduced next year to less than $4) so that we can leisurely toss waste in a bin and take it to the curb time to time. Who cares?

This is trivial as to what waits over the years for us if we donít develop smarter practices.

If this is a difficult task one can only wonder what other activities that are too bothersome to contribute to your community are being done.

Sometimes it is painfully apparent that Airdrie residents care little for our town.

From the garbage blowing everywhere, stuck in fences to the very questionable quality of Nose Creek waterway.

I for one will recycle my organics down to every little scrap, but, I guess thatís because Iím the little wife that looks after the household.

Jill Schneider,
