This truck is colored red and yellow but is called a green truck. It comes and collects paper and cardboard for recycling. My kind of truck. Most people just recycle without wantting to be paid.

But now for incentives for my school, they pay the school some money. My school has gone a step further, we encourage parents to bring their paper from home. I have seen parents lugging their old newspaper and cardboard. What a fantastic idea.

Like the idea that this company does organic garbage pick-up. I have not seen any trucks like this or heard of any companies doing this in our area of the world. What a great idea. The logo and colors are great...very eye catching. Super shot and a super idea. genie

Ha,ha, the green hooded orchids are right under the caption, 3rd photo. They are only 6-8" high and appear insignificant to some.

What a fantastic idea! Beautiful capture of the "green truck".

So re-cycle is very good to us, and to the Earth.

So I have to "re-cycle" your idea and tell this to everyone.

I'm all for recycling, no matter the color of the truck!



SOME CALL IT RED

“I don’t have time,” my grandfather said,
“to dither around and stand on my head,
pretending that crimson is blue, not red—
just tell me the truth, if you please.

“I’m much too old for being lied to,
so tell me the truth about the rose hue
that colors the sky when the day is through
and adds a bright blush to the trees.

“Some call it red and some call it pink,
some call it strawberry wine-colored ink;
I call it rubicund, that’s what I think—
now leave me alone, if you please.”

it is illegal to remove driftwood from the beaches and a very large fine for removing it, so no furniture to be built.

Interesting!

That's great to have it at the school and it starts kids young thinking about recycling.
