Green Bin Disposal
by Sharon Balke
Aren’t the green recycling cans great? They holdso much and there is no worry of material getting wet if it rains or blowing away if it’s windy. I hope that Timbergrove has at least an 80% participation rate.
I have found a place that will accept the old recycling bins. It is the city’s facility at 9003 N. Main, four miles one-way from my house. The easiest way to get there is to take Shepherd north to Crosstimbers, turn right by Sears and go another mile or so to N. Main. Turn left and the facility is about two blocks down on your left. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday, closed Monday and Tuesday.
There is usually a line to get in the driveway but the attendant on duty told me that anyone with recycling only doesn’t have to wait in line. Just park on N. Main or a side street and carry your bin behind the small office. There were probably a dozen bins there when I visited on July 10.
I easily put four bins in the back seat of my car. Perhaps a good soul with a truck could round up a lot of his or her neighbors’ bins and take them. Your reward, besides your neighbors’ appreciation, would be a stop at either Flying Saucer Pie Company or Barbecue Inn, both on Crosstimbers.
If you want to keep the bin for your personal use, the city allows this.
Recycle, make a difference…it’s your world, too.
