  1. How much did that cost and might not one of the new recycle bin been a better idea?

    Reduce, Reuse, Recycle instead.

  2. The article says the cans cost $3100-$3900. I can see how they earn their keep in public places by saving labor and fuel costs. I’m not so sure about the environmental friendliness of these things. They compact trash–including recyclables–making it difficult/impossible to do anything but throw the lump of stuff into the landfill. Maybe the fuel savings makes this carbon neutral, but the reporter didn’t ask that question.
