My sister moved from Toronto to Richmond VA this summer and she just told me that they don't recycle and they have garbage pick up 2 times a week.
That seems kinda crazy. Toronto has been recycling for about 10 years now so it seem almost second nature. Now we have to compost. Compost pickup is every week and we alternate recycling pick and garbage pick up every week so that garbage is now picked up only once every 2 weeks.
We aren't allowed to throw out compost (anything biodegradable) or anything recyclable in our garbage.
Is this just Richmond or is it similar in other places?
