RE: [greenyes] Recycling evicted from Post Offices
Is it just me, or does anyone else feel that the assertion that one is more
likely to read something if one trashes it than if one recycles it, to be
absurd?  Is there any backing this up?

Maybe there should be a call-in day for USPS just like there was for Disney.

As we understand it from conversations with the district manager, this is a
nation-wide policy.  And, no, they are not removing the trash cans, because
apparently when someone throws junk mail in the trash (instead of recycling
it) they don't have the same inclination to not buy from the catalogues.

The impetus to put the bins in the post offices came from employees that
noticed that 99% of the material in the trash cans was recyclable paper.

One result we are certain of is that, at a minimum, the post offices will
have to triple their number trash cans or frequency of trash service - our
recycling bins are three to one for trash cans.
