Baltimore is appreciated for a lot of things—sports, architecture, arts and culture, horse racing, and certain personal eccentricities like hairstyles and attitude. For many, though, Baltimore is about great landmarks. Whether it's the Shot Tower or one of the city's famed monuments, Baltimore can lay claim to the title of a place of world-renowned architecture.
Every couple of months, and by way of larger-than-life graphics affixed to a 120-foot fence across from the Fitzgerald Garage and the Barnes & Noble at the University of Baltimore on West Oliver Street, the University is posing a different question about Baltimore. The UB community, its neighbors and even passersby can vote on their favorite of four possible answers by recycling as much as they can in bins that will be used to tally up the answers. The bin that has collected the most recycling by the end of the voting will determine the winning answer. "Talking Trash: UB Votes to Recycle"'s latest question is "What is the most important issue in the upcoming presidential election?" Voters can dispose of their recyclable paper, cans and bottles in the bin of their choice and cast their vote as often as they would like.
The voting is starting now. Check back soon to see updated tallies.
