An Idea Whose Time Should Not Have Come

August 20, 2010 10:10:03.808

This is just ridiculous:

The chips will allow city workers to monitor how often residents roll carts to the curb for collection. If a chip show a recyclable cart hasn't been brought to the curb in weeks, a trash supervisor will sort through the trash for recyclables.

If you haven't brought the cart out "enough", they'll start sorting through your trash and fining you if you throw out "too many" recyclables. This is right up there with the Greek government - scanning Google Maps for pools that haven't been taxed.

Update: The irony of this post is that after I posted this, I charged outside to put my recycling bin at the curb. I had forgotten what day it was, and the truck was coming.
