Recycling woes – pay up or don’t recycle
Jan 15,2007 00:00 by Ken Nairns, NE Providence Rd.,

Being an avid recycler and choosing my groceries by the type of container (i.e. Is it recyclable).  The garbage company has notified me that they will no longer pick up my recycle stuff unless I start garbage service with them or pay a monthly fee.

There are plenty of containers out there that can be recycled but the richest company in Bend wants their money and be damned with the recycling.

Bend has one of the highest poverty rates per capita and yet cannot seem to come to terms with that....
