T - Recycle Bins

Driving around town today. In one neighborhood it was the first recycling pickup since Christmas. I found it very interesting to look at the bins and study the cardboard in them. Oh, this house got a new Wii, and this one got a Blu-Ray player, and over here they got an HDTV. It really is amazing how much our trash says about us. For many years police departments have cautioned people about putting boxes from high-end electronics out in the trash where burglars can use them as a shopping guide for which houses to break into. I never really thought about it too much until today when it was abundandly apparent that most people enthusiastically announce to anyone who wants to know that they have just gotten a new electronic gadget. Maybe a little thought and caution really is in order.
