To the editor:
I am applauding Nick Benson for his efforts on behalf of the environment (Journal-World, Oct. 1). He is willing to get into trash bins to retrieve items people should be recycling. I do what I can, but I have yet to actually get into a trash bin.
I am the one who might be checking your trash at work for aluminum cans, plastic bottles and plastic grocery bags. Fortunately, I work at a place where most people recycle. I know my few “regulars,” whose trash I have to check daily. There are few of them where I work because the management has worked with us to set up recycling bins. Still, a few people don’t take the easy step to recycle. Why? The answer completely eludes me.
