I can’t believe that ecomaine does not want all the clean and appropriate recyclables available to sustain and keep the nonprofit viable. I cannot believe ecomaine cares from which town or from which household appropriate recyclables come from.

Putting a wall around Augusta’s containers does not address the real problem — misuse (“City councilors considering fine for nonresident use of Augusta’s recycling bins,” Jan. 15).

Thinking that the nonrecyclables left outside the bins are from out-of-towners is silly. How parochial this thinking is at this time when our environment is threatened.

I believe all good actions that help manage waste should be encouraged, not thwarted.
