The Lone Star Recycle Container State

We may think that our struggles in the borough over waste and recylcing are hard, but we should feel for the campaigners and residents of Houston, one of the USA's largest cities. Presently they only recycle 2.6% of their waste, and if the photo in the New York Times this morning was anything to go by, residents couldn't even recycle if they wanted to due to the severe shortage of containers for recycling.

(However, don't you think that it's a bit uncanny and eerily worrying that the containers look so like our own - globalisation has some benefits, but I do wonder if homogenization of society is one of its ills).
