Letter to the Editor: Drop-off recycling an opportunity to serve your neighbor

Recycling

I recently had occasion to drop off bottles at one of the new recycling sites. 

I’m all for things being handicapped accessible, but even with ramps, it involves some amount of physical labor to tote your boxes and cartons of bottles from your car to the bins, pull them out of the cardboard, open the door and toss them in.

So, here’s a suggestion. 

If you are able-bodied and using the recycling bins and have a neighbor who is disabled or maybe just doesn’t get around all that well, go knock on their door and see if they have any recycling you could drop off for them. 

Love your neighbor.
