Raccoon Tableau: Displaying an Urban Critter In Its Natural Environment, Complete with a Recology Garbage CanTuesday, April 7th, 2015
You know, I was just thinking how long it’s been since I’ve seen any waterlogged phone books stacked up on the Streets of San Francisco.
But now, they’re back, all over the place. See?
But then, nobody picks them up and then they’re garbage. Or recycling.
Hey, how many days does it take for an unwanted stack of phone books to become garbage? One? Two?
And hey, what about the plastic around the phone books – is that the recyclable kind? IDK.
And if a hundred get stacked up outside a large apartment building, then the super’s gotta go through and unwrap each one? Sounds like a chore.
Speaking of which, here’s a dozen or so 2015 415 books in a Recology blue bin:
Poor naive Dolan Law Firm – all that marketing money, wasted!
I’ve said this before – nobody in the 415 wants your product, phone book industry. What you all should do is deliver your books, unwrapped, direct to Recology and save us all a lot of trouble.
PS: “Opt out” is a lie. That’s just what they want you to do, opt out. Oh, please take all my information, you know, to prove I am who I say I am, so that the phone book industry can rest assured that “bad actors” aren’t impersonating me in order to deprive me of my phone book, for some odd reason, and I’m supposed to “opt out” each and every year, the better to keep track of me? OK fine. And oh, you dinosaurs have a “sustainability report?” Well why don’t you people print it out on paper and send it to me every year, whether I want it or not? GREAT!
Bandit Entrepreneur Steals Recycling from Recology Monopoly – But He’s Traded in His Shopping Cart for ThisTuesday, March 19th, 2013
A big-old van!
And this wasn’t even all that late at night, on McAllister in the so-called Alamo Square Historic District, which is what real estate-obsessed white people call their part of the Western Addition.
I’ve never seen this!
Dude just double parks his ride on McAllister inbound and then tips over a green bin of aluminum cans and bottles into a garbage bag.
And then yet another load goes into the back, thusly. A victimless crime?

(And I says to him, I says, “Get your Robin Hood on – put some pressure on The Man.”)
In other news, the Recology monopoly wants to raise its rates like 50% or something. (Oh not now, you’ll wait until next year to raise rates 50%? OK fine.)
Do other towns in the bay area have garbage monopolies the way Recology has fixed things in San Francisco?
