In honor of Blog Action Day I will write a short post on a local environmental issue.
On October 15th, bloggers around the web will unite to put a single important issue on everyone’s mind – the environment. Every blogger will post about the environment in their own way and relating to their own topic. Our aim is to get everyone talking towards a better future.
I will put enviornment on the mind of my fellow Columbus, Ohio readers. Upper Arlington, a suburb of Columbus, charges residents $3.10 per trash bag collected. Residents must purchase bright orange stickers, again $3.10 each, and put a sticker on each trash bag in order for it to be collected. However, items to be recycled and placed in recycling bins, are picked up at no charge. The city of Columbus has this a little backwards in that it charges residents $5 a month for those who choose to participate in its recycling program, and does not charge residents anything for picking up waste.
