Your View: Make it a habit

JOPLIN, Mo. — The Globe is right (Our View, Globe, May 5) that recycling is important enough to simply launch a trial run rather than spend money on a ballot issue, but if we’re going to do it, let’s do it right.

Recycling can become habit if it’s made part of a weekly routine, but it won’t be easy if people have to remember which week to do it. The city recycling center has the same problem in that the hours of operation are different depending on which day of the week it is. (Council members, do you know the hours?) I hope the City Council will find a way to make recycling routine, but if they can’t, I predict it will be a failure.
