Everyone’s trying to be more green these days. Green collar jobs are the future, grocery stores offer discounts if you bring your own shopping bags, and cities are requiring that residents separate and recycle their trash before pickup. (By the way, the City of Dallas is currently phasing in its “OneDay” trash and recycle program. Eventually, every Dallas resident will only have trash picked up once per week (regular trash = green bins, to-be-recycled trash = blue bins). Check www.onedaydallas.com to ensure correct dates and rules.)
Dallas has been one of the key “green” cities in the United States, beginning in 1992 with the purchase of its first alternative fueled vehicle. In fact, as reported by greendallas.net, the city expects to complete “more than 25 green facilities between 2003 and 2010, including ten libraries, seven police and fire stations, one cultural center, three recreation centers, three service centers, and a homeless assistance center.” Dallas was even voted No. 5 out of the 50 largest cities in the nation on its “Alternative Fueled City Fleets” due to approximately 41% of its fleet being hybrids or running on alternative fuels.
