Bin there, done that

In Asheville, we pride ourselves on being earth-friendly, nearly every business has some means of recycling their cans, paper, plastic and bottles. However, when a customer takes something away [from a store] that can be easily recycled, then they either (a) need to carry the recyclable thing or things to their home and/or office [where] hopefully they have a recycle bin; or, (b) they need to take the thing or things into another business and ask that the recyclable stuff be put in that business’ recycling bin, [perhaps] then walking out without buying anything. There are not many stores that would let someone do that.

The point I am trying to make is: Why doesn’t the city of Asheville have recycling bins in the downtown area?
