Letter: It's time for Bemidji to embrace recycling

I would like to propose a recycling fee on Bemidji area residents. By doing so, we can receive Solid Waste Management Trust Fund grants and the city will profit by sales of the recyclables.

I'm trying to figure out on how we can make this a free mandatory pickup service. So everyone gets their own recycling bin for free, pretty much like the bins we have now for garbage, but smaller. I think it’s time for us to start getting green and separate the garage from the plastics, aluminums and cardboard. It will benefit the

community much.
