Most of the cities in the Imperial Valley have been participating in the recycling programs for some time now, and things seem to be going well after a bit of a rough kickoff period.
The green cans for yard waste and brown cans for recyclables often are brimming, which means less is going into the black trash cans. All of that is good for the Valley and good for our world.
We should be proud of ourselves.
We as good residents and good neighbors really need to put away the cans after the trucks come around and collect the materials. We often talk about how we need to beautify our Imperial Valley. This would be one fine place to start. Our neighborhoods should be as nice as possible, but in recent months we have seen some lovely areas marred by trash cans out for longer than they should be.
