Hamilton's Blue Box pick-up policies are getting a bit too militant.

I have been a keen participant in Hamilton's recycling efforts since inception but I notice with greater and greater frequency that my blue boxes are left at the curbside because of some silly rule like some paper mixed in with containers or some inadvertently broken piece of glass.

The very least the city could do in such cases is to take away the blue box contents and leave an informational notice for next week. It helps neither party to leave garbage at the doorstep.

Recycling isn't a perfect process but it's success depends more on one single factor that on anything else: PARTICIPATION.

Every we alienate a Hamilton taxpayer with uncollected trash, we risk loosing a recycling advocate.

Hamilton's landfill quantities have doubled in the last 5 years. Could it be that I'm not the only person in town who's no longer interested in supporting this city's militant recycling regime?

Gotta go now ... It's gonna take some time and effort and fuel to drive somewhere to dump the stuff that didn't get picked up.

Yours Sincerely,
Annoyed former recycling participant.
