re: scavengers

I've heard them called vultures. I've seen drivers honk, flash their lights, and drive wildly while passing them.

It needs to stop.

For the record, the people who drive around slowly during bulky item collection, scavenging huge piles of items, are doing us all a favor. Actually two.

1. They are keeping reusable items out of landfills, thus saving landfill space and extending the length of time a landfill is usable.

2. It costs the city FEWER dollars to transport FEWER items to landfills.

So please be patient and drive safely around them. Maybe even consider saying thanks. And if you really, truly cannot bear to see recycling in action, do try to avoid each neighborhood the weekend before pickup begins.
