Thankful for weekly recycling collections in Kentlands


The City of Gaithersburg, Maryland provides weekly collection of recycled materials for residents of Kentlands each Thursday. This week, for Thankgiving, the collection day has been changed to Saturday, November 26, 2016.  This includes newspaper, mixed paper, corrugated cardboard, and commingled materials, as well as  brush, branches, grass clippings, leaves and other yard trimmings, picked up by the City's recycling contractor. 

ActiveRain Ambassador Debbie Reynolds has asked member bloggers to post daily blog about things for which we are thankful. You still have time to participate in this November contest.

Recycling programs, like garbage pickups, are something we rarely stop to think about. So many things we take for granted without actively appreciating them.

Hi Roy

Recycling is a great thing to be thankful for and even better that ot's provided by your community. I suspect some don't take as much advantage of this as they could. Our community does the same.

My recycling was picked up this morning. Feels good to know it's not just ending up in a landfill somewhere.

Gorgeous picture!

Hi Roy! Thank you for acknowledging recycling. It is a small effort that hopefully will product big results. I thank people in my building when I see them recycle. Usually they are from other parts of the country or world where recycling is mandatory.

The type of services you mentioned is greatly appreciated. Yet, many take the services for granted. I remember years, decades ago when I heard on the news there was a strike in NY and the trash wasn't being collected. Of course, that was before recycling was even thought of but it sure caused havoc! 

I'm sure glad cities have recycling programs and it doesn't all end up in the landfill. This is a great thing for all of us to be thankful for. Thank you for thinking of it!

At 7 p.m. on Sunday in the east, it became Monday on ActiveRain. I have been awarded points over the weekend but am still not receiving notifications on comments even though I am receiving other notifications. Other members report that they have not been awarded points over the Thanksgiving weekend.
