Talking trash

I attended my college reunion this month and walked around campus, noticing what had changed in the 30 years since I received my diploma. Some buildings had been razed, others looked a little shabbier. A new dormitory occupied a rose garden where we had held a post-graduation reception.
   Being amongst all those youngsters made me feel a bit old and in the way. Then I spied a newspaper recycling bin, which cheered me up because it meant the kids haven’t given up on an ancient medium. It’s not all online, download, or freeshare with the next generation. They have stuff they throw away. Do they ever. Colleges will recycle an estimated 50 million tons of waste in this year’s RecycleMania competition. That’s pretty cool.
   When I returned to the office, I found a catalog of waste bins from Magnuson Group, Woodridge, IL. These stylish containers would go a long way in sprucing up dear old alma mater.Jim Carper
