Don't Rob Those Blue Wheelie Bins!
The City of Florence provides green wheelie bins for garbage pickup and blue wheelie bins for recycling. They are technically on loan to citizens to facilitate city operations.
Anything placed in the blue bins becomes the property of the City of Florence. Diving for aluminum cans and other items is an act of theft and can be prosecuted.
The city's recycling program is not only good for the enviroment, it provides jobs for residents, especially those who are in need of a job to pay off a fine. Income from recycling also helps to expand the program and streamline operations.
If you see someone stealing from the blue wheelie bins, call police. This is a crime against not only the City of Florence, but you as well.
