There has already been a similar post. However I believe that it is important to point out that this is an initiative to recycle more. How often do you believe people ignore the fact that this is for cardboard only.
This blog is a product of Geography of Garbage class (ENV 204), which I teach at Hobart and William Smith Colleges (www.hws.edu). The blog represents a collaborative effort among more than 30 students in the course in Spring 2011, and seeks to make visible (through photos and commentary) what we often prefer to be invisible: our garbage.
