Gary Rose: Using recycling bins for garbage is disgusting

Gary Rose writes:
Using the recycling bins for garbage is disgusting. I have not seen any garbage in them, but don''t doubt it. What I have noticed is that at times all the compartments are fairly full but the can compartment will be empty. I don't think that I am the only one putting cans in the bins. This tells me that people are stealing the cans and the related revenue from the county. I am most likely wrong here, but once something goes into the recycling bins is it not now the property of the county? I believe that since the recycling bins are property of Adair County then so are the contents once it goes into the bins. Maybe one of the lawyers we have in the county can answer this. --Gary Rose
