Residents of Eureka pay to have recyclables removed, because the city requires it, since most people are to lazy to lift a finger to recycle. This has reduced our trash volume considerably.
Unfortunately, the thieves reduce the value of our recycling, because they skim all of the good stuff (aluminum, and bottles with redemption value).
