Recycling bin gets recycled

On the morning of Sept. 1, I noticed that a city of Fargo garbage truck had stopped alongside a neighbor’s house to empty one of their new containers. I was surprised to see this, as there was a note included with my water bill stating that the new “garbage system” was to start on Sept. 14.

I watched in awe as the mighty tongs descended on the container and deposited its refuse.

The problem? The only thing in the new garbage can was one of the new recycling bins.

So much for recycling.
