Recycle Bins Appear Downtown

When I read heard the story – which I think was on Knoxnews – I got excited thinking that we were about to get curbside recycling downtown. We aren’t. Still, maybe we are a step closer. Recycle bins have been placed for visitors to downtown to use. I hope they will. I spoke to one of the workers collecting from the bins and he said they were being utilized pretty heavily, already. If this goes well, maybe the program will be expanded. One of the questions looming are the bins an eyesore? Below are pictures of one in Krutch Park Extension, one on Market Square and the top of one so you get the idea. What do you think – a necessary improvement or an eyesore? You can take a survey and tell the city what you think.
