Letter: New bins at the recycling center in Aspen

If you have been to the recycling center recently, you have noticed the new mixed recyclable bins. Here are some tips for using them:

1) Do not bring much as the bins are usually filled to overflowing.

2) Bring a small step ladder which you will place in front of the bin.

3) Hoist your container onto your hip and step onto your ladder.

4) Free one hand long enough to raise the giant lid and duck your head under it.

5) Extend your head up while raising onto your toes to create an opening large enough for your container.

6) Dump your container by dragging it up the side of your body and forcing it in the opening.

7) Step down and pick up all the items that spilled back out and repeat from step 3.
