Hey! That is MY Recycling...

Okay, in our city we can pay to participate in curb side recycling. It is great and the cost in minimal--$47 a year. It is a pilot program and I love it. We drink a lot of soda, beer, coffee flavor syrup, milk, etc. Oh and don't even get me started on newspapers and magazines. We have forgotten to put out our recyling 2 weeks ago and then we were out of town last week. So needless to say we had a lot of recycling. Also, we had a ton of cans from when we recylced but weren't part of a recyling program and were too frickin' lazy to take the cans to the recyling center.

So, like good citizens, we put our recycling out last night--it has to be out at the curm before 7am. Well about 10 minutes ago, the dogs started growling and barking. This means one of a few things--there is another dog that dare tread on their sidewalk, a leaf is blowing across the street and they think it is a rabbit, squirrel or a cat, and now I can add to this list--someone stealing my recycling....

Insanity! Are you in a state where they pay you to return cans? Cuz when I was in HS, we used to call up the local "can collector" to clean up after we had parties when my mom was out of town. I think this guy might be your local can collector! Make sure Minnow doesn't get his card, then throw ragers when you're out biking.
