Maine recycles its bottles and cans. I think it's a good thing. This is a redemption center that I sometimes take my empties to on Brighton Avenue. I can't remember the last time I threw a 'nickel' away. I just think it's a good thing to do for the planet. All my paper and assorted garbage is thrown away in proper receptacles, even if I have to go out of my way. At the end of the day, I often have paper in my pocket that I have forgotten to throw away. This is not something I learned from my parents; it's something I've done because it's the right thing to do. Some towns, cities and countries do a better job at it, and we need to follow their lead. We each need to do our part in taking care of this big, blue marble.
