Letter: Keep it simple to be green

The more complicated it is to recycle, the less people are inclined to do it

I laughed when I saw the notice on our blue bin. Seems like the CRD, and Oak Bay, are “excited” that they now accept glass bottles and jars in a “separate container.”

What’s so exciting about that? The fact I now have to carry out five containers to the curb – blue blox, blue bin, green bin, grey bin, and now a glass box? Plus cardboard? I think “excited” must refer to the company doing this and the money they’ll save.

People want to recycle, but the more complicated it is and harder to do, the less likely they will recycle.

Come on CRD and Oak Bay, keep it simple to keep it green.
