There is a very serious reason for the bins - property.
If YOUR trash bins were still used, the "property" in them is yours. You would be entitled to any money generated from the sale of your property -
cardboard, glass, plastic etc.
Because the bins are the "property" of the state, you forfeit your claim when you place your property into THEIR bins on THEIR street for pickup.
They are free to collect whatever money they can from selling YOUR property. Did they tell you this?
If that isn't greedy enough, they want to make sure that their sales of your property are profitable, so your pay their service fees, so the "pick
up" isn't eating into their profits. Kind of like the mafia charging your for pickup of your waste, then selling your waste to make a few extra
bucks - wait, kind of like?
