Fail! Fail! Fail! Fail!

Drove down to recycling this afternoon to find this mess... the recycling bin was gone, but that didn't stop a bunch of lunkheads from leaving their recycling items for others to deal with. You know if this keeps up, recycling will be out of here, and responsible recyclers will have to pay the price.
This isn't the only thing that drives me bonkers. Nobody seems to follow the simple rules! Why can't folks learn to CRUSH their plastic bottles and cans, so there's more room for the next guy's recycling? Why can't folks learn to FLATTEN their cardboard boxes and other items, so there's more room for the next guy's stuff?
C'mon folks, use some common sense! If the recycling bins are full -- or missing -- don't just toss it out on the ground! Take it home and bring it back another time. Stop being a pig! Stop leaving a mess for others to deal with!
