My name is Thomas, and if you have noticed someone looking through your recycling this month, that would be me. Well, I hope so at least.
The Division of Solid Waste Services is doing a recycling survey for the month of June 2014. I go out 5 days a week with a Field Staffer from the Division and look at what you have set out for recycling. It is nothing to be concerned about—we are just gathering data to help us improve our programs.
As an intern from outside Montgomery County, and outside of Maryland, the Division’s recycling program is entirely new to me. So, I spent some time studying the "Recycling Basics" flyer to get myself acquainted with the dual stream method. I have been impressed by how many households recycle.
Although, some of you have some pretty beaten up bins:
|Cracked and taped recycling bin (oops! no plastic bags, please!)|
|An even more cracked recycling bin|
Some of you like to fill your bins up. Like all the way up:
|Overflowing recycling bins|
Until my next report,
