Are you ready for curbside recycling?

Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover announced today that citywide curbside recycling will start in August. Residents should start receiving their blue bins in June.

Many of our readers may live in apartments, and officials with Pratt Industries, the company that is building a paper mill at the Port of Shreveport-Bossier and is handling recycling collection for the city, say complex managers can call them to get community bins.

What are your thoughts? Will you participate, and do you think others will? Is the timing good or a little late?

I don't believe that it is too late. It is NEVER too late to take better care of our environment. Manufacturing from recycled materials as opposed to raw materials uses so much less energy.

When the city it providing an avenue to recycle and when it is as EASY as single-stream recycling is, how can you NOT participate? I'm so proud to live in a city that is takig a progressive stance on such an important issue as recycling.
