TRASH: Better Recycling Bins?

Question/Comment: Would it be possible for the City to provide better, bigger, and perhaps covered recycling bins?

City Update 1/1/2009: It is possible that a different recycling pick-up program could include larger, city-provided recycling bins. However, this significant cost would need to be absorbed somehow. At present, pick up and disposal of recycling is higher than that of solid waste, so there are no savings available to subsidize purchase of better bins.
