I placed my Polk County recycle bin on the curb Sunday night in anticipation of the regular Monday pick-up. My bin only contained the items listed as acceptable by the county.

I checked the bin early Monday before it was emptied by the county’s contractor and found it topped off with neighbors’ glass bottles and plastic containers that are not on the acceptable list.

Apparently because of the county’s delay in getting bins to everyone, folks without the new bins are throwing their stuff in bins of we who are following the new rules.
