Recycle the system
To the Journal editor:
I have an observation for the entire city of Marquette. It seems very ironic to me that in riding or walking around the city after our garbage and recycling pick ups are done, it appears there are more full containers of recyclables than empty containers.
I certainly wish the city would go back to the old system of recycling. I had two full containers of metal cans for pickup two weeks ago and they were not picked up.
In questioning the city, I was told because they were in paper bags they were not picked up, even though they were perfectly clean. I have many friends who have stopped recycling because of the new policies.
I feel that recycling is very important to the world today and would appreciate returning to the old system.
