at least 1 million pounds a month That's still just a drop in the landfill compared with the 1 billion pounds thrown away each year For those who recycle — that's about half of Wichita households — the dropoff boxes have been widely popular Twice as many people use those boxes as pay the $230 a month to have recyclables picked up at the curb with their garbage Spencer m This is the second time BFI and Dillons have come to the rescue of the taxpayers In 1990 when the city was thinking of opening the first dropoff centers at an estimated cost of $123 million over five years BFI and Dillons

dropoff centers will take only the recycling staples — newspapers (don’t wrap them in paper or plastic bags) glass (brown green and dear food and drink containers separated by color with metal caps
