San Francisco is proud of our mandatory recycling system. We dutifully fill our blue bins with paper waste. In many neighborhoods, trashpickers come by to retrieve discarded bottles from the trash so as to the collect California's Refund Value, mostly 5 cents a bottle. Now that's nasty work.
The bins sometimes sit on the street for hours waiting for collection -- who knows what else enterprising explorers might find among the papers?
