Someone is stealing our recycling every Friday morning. Not the newspapers, just the bags of cans/glass/bottles. This was happening a while back when My Sweetie was putting out the recycling at night, so I asked him to start putting out the recycling in the mornings and we were good for a while. The odd thing is he leaves around 8:00 a.m. for work and I am usually up around 9:00 a.m. for Meals on Wheels, so the thieves have their timing just right.
Why do I care, you ask? Well I put forth some effort to clean food cans and bottles and plastic soap containers and such and I imagine these thieves are tossing all that in the garbage somewhere and just keeping the beer and soft drink cans for the aluminum. It irks me that I am being so conscientious about my recycling and these people are most likely putting all that nicely cleaned recyclable material into a dumpster somewhere.
We have large bushes on either side of the driveway so I'm thinking about sitting by the bush where anyone driving up the street can not see me. Then when they pull up, I will pop up and ask, "Why are you taking my recycling?" I wonder what will happen.
