Incentive to recycle

Trash/Recycling bin combos like this one are slowly popping up all over campus. It's a pretty creative idea -- make the recycling bin larger so there's an incentive to fill it up in order to preserve precious space in the tiny attached trash bin.

Really makes you think.. "Can what I'm about to toss out be recycled?"

Will this succeed? Will people be willing to put up with the annoyance of a minuscule trash can in an attempt to save the planet? Will we begin seeing more of these?

I doubt it. If anything, people will toss non-recyclables or - even worse - compostables into the recycling can, as soon as the smaller can is full.
