Your View: Get with the times

JOPLIN, Mo. — This past weekend I was able to visit Tulsa, Okla., and before heading back to Joplin, I stopped at a gas station to fill up.

As usual, I had accumulated some trash on my little road trip so I took that time to clean out the car. After throwing away water bottles in the trash, I saw the recycling container. I was embarrassed to have walked right past it to the trash can without even thinking there might be a receptacle for my recyclables.

Get with the times, Joplin. We need to do our part.
