Re: [greenyes] Colors of curbside recycling bins

I am unaware of any "standards" in California. Where I work (Long Beach),
recycling carts and bins are bright purple (makes them real easy to spot).
Where I live (Costa Mesa), we have fully comingled refuse / recycling /
greenwaste, and the City provides green carts, of all the colors to
choose for such a program :-(.

Most residents who ask me about yardwaste carts refer to "green carts,"
which is the color many jurisdicstions use. Lots of places use blue carts
for comingled recyclables.
