In response to the story ("Some residents worried about overflowing Lindale bins," The Daily News, Nov. 22): Given how detrimental all plastic products are to our sea life, in particular our turtles, shouldn't there be a plastic recycling bin on every corner?

Instead, at Lindale Park there's only paper and cardboard recycling and all plastic must be driven to 61st Street.

Being a barrier island with fishing a major industry, shouldn't we be leading the charge against plastics, which are only about 3 percent recycled?

How much is a turtle worth? How many turtles must be saved to pay for one recycle bin? Turtles are not affordable if it requires a bin on every corner. Even good ideas become stupid if carried too far.

Better idea would be: drive to 61st to dispose of plastic.
