I've peeped at Letters to the Editor which say that taxpayers have to pay for the pick-up and then pay to redeem or something like that? Can someone please fill me in on the details?

You pay a recycling fee, which is the main gripe. But you also earn points based on how many pounds of recycling is collected in your area and you can redeem the points for things such as gift cards. It takes a lot of points to get stuff, but we'd recycle anyway, so we just occasionally cash in the points and get a $10 Home Depot gift card.

You have to pay this fee on top of garbage fee?

I'm not sure how it breaks down, but my bill shows a "Total Solid Waste" fee of $24.31, including tax.

I'm not aware of it costing more.
I had to purchase a second recycle bin, as I generate twice as much recyclable as I do trash. What with composting, and storing my glass to give back every quarter.
