I had to laugh when I read how the poor Lindale Park area residents might have to haul their trash the 5.7 miles to the recycling center because the recycling bins have been neglected and misused ('Some residents worried about overflowing Lindale bins," The Daily News, Nov. 22).

I would love to have one of those bins on the West End (yes, way out there past Jamaica Beach), so I can avoid the 18.7 miles I drive every week to drop off my recycling.

Now "that" would really save on gas.

Maybe it's the engineer in me, but aren't we on an island? How hard would it be to move a recycling barge up and down the seawall on a weekly or biweekly schedule?

We have paid (cheap) for private curbside pick-up of recycle trash one a week for the last several years. Not sure if it is available down the Island but it definitely is available anywhere in town.
