RH Line calls printed Feb. 4: Rural recycling, train times


(Special to the Reporter-Herald)

Rural recycling

I live just west of Loveland. My trash hauler … just informed me that they can no longer provide recycle service in my area because, quote, “There’s not enough interest in recycling in the rural areas.” Come on folks, just because we live in the country doesn’t mean we can’t help save the planet, too.

People are happy to have health care, and the bottom line is at least people who are on universal health care systems can get on a waiting list to see a doctor or have a procedure done. In this country, I challenge anybody who doesn’t have insurance or enough money to cover it to go try and make a doctor appointment or walk in and get an MRI done. You can’t; you can’t even get on the list. …
