A Sea of Cobalt Blue

From the Orange County Recycling Web Site: Cart contractor staff deliver roll carts to Orange County rural residents that requested a cart.

The past few weeks in Orange County NC have been a blur of cobalt blue! And this time, not because of bottletrees, but because of these awesome new electric blue recycling carts the County is distributing for curbside recycling.

We love our new rolling cart — it holds a LOT more and makes it easier to get the stuff out to the curb. It also hopefully makes life easier for the people collecting the recyclables.

We’re definitely going to have to adjust our eyes, however. As dedicated bottletree hunters, we are used to slamming on the brakes and hollering “bottletree!?!?” whenever we see this bright blue cobalt color peeking out of someone’s backyard or from behind their garage. Now that practically every house has one of these new containers, we’re going to have to sharpen our skills! 🙂
