By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

Do you recycle?

In my country, we are told that we have to recycle as much as possible to save the environment. I know that different countries have other guidelines, so could you tell me about yours?

We have a bin for garden waste, one for cardboard, one for glass, one for paper and one for plastic.

What is the system like in your country?

    I am really sad to say this.In our country also we are told it.But most people don`t care about it.In some cities, people involve this.We are educated about recycling.But the act of country still poor in this case.

    Sadly, no such system in our country. People throw garbage in open places from where poor young children gather papers and plastic and sell them at scrap shops. I have written a story on it years back in Urdu. This is least I can do on this issue.

    That is such a shame, because doing that can really ruin a great environment. We should be doing everything that we can to save our planet, not destroy it!

    Britain is really late in recycling and separating waste @GemmaRowlands. I remember that Germany was already doing this forty years ago! Now I think most countries are doing it (in Ecuador and Colombia there are recycling bins everywhere).

    Yes I can believe that this is the case, we are only now starting to make moves with regards to sorting our country out in this respect!
