      holy crap, and it doesn't help that they are in plastic bags either.

      What is crazy about this photo is that you can tell that the next the books are going to be delivered because the city’s [Orlando] waste department rolls this cans out for a few days then they disappear again for 6 months. Last cycle I got 3 sets, one large and one small from each of the 3 companies competing in my neighborhood. They even upgraded the recycling equipment to take them with the newspapers too.

      Never seen a specialized bin like this.

      Most excellent for the Phone Book pool.
