Many cities don't have a recycling program, and, in the hood, bums will search through people's trash for aluminum cans to turn in for some cash.

It's best to separate them out so the bum will make less of a mess, or you can discourage the bums via other means.
Oh, I wish Terre Haute had a recycling program.

We do: ghetto recycling. The bums come by and raid your trash the day before pickup for cans to turn in for beer money. Saving the environment, bums actually DOING something, free beer for them, everybody wins.
