Back Lane Environmentalists

My salutation goes to those poor and destitute trash collectors who carry shopping carts or plastic bags collecting refundable empty beer, liquor, soda bottles, cans and juice containers while picking up the litter for a cleaner environment.
 
Monday is our garbage, compost and recycling pick up day.
 
The back lane becomes a goldmine. It has more foot traffic for collectors. The empties are the gold. These are dug out from garbage containers and blue boxes. And the booties are loaded in wobbling shopping carts or carried in tattered bags.
 
How much one can collect depends on how much the previous collector could not pick up. The exploration continues until the big trucks haul everything away.
 
The recycling is a bonanza for the street environmentalists. And Monday is their day to earn few extra coins.
