Since I moved into my apartment here in Portland, there is one thing I noticed. They make it really easy to recycle. All the places I lived at in Minnesota, none of them offered recycling. Here, when I moved in, I was given instructions on how to do it, etc.
One small difference, but really a huge one in a way. Most apartments don’t recycle at all, and there are a ton of people who live in apartments. All the plastic and glass for sure is easy enough to recycle, so why not?
