MAN: I don’t know. I mean it is a good idea. But I really don’t read the newspaper every day or anything.

WOMAN: And we don’t come collect newspaper every day! In fact, we only do pickups every other week.

MAN: Oh, well then maybe I could help. I mean in my neighbour­hood, there’s too much rubbish lying around everywhere. I’d like to help out, I guess.

WOMAN: That’s great, sir. You’re doing the right thing. OK, I need to get your contact information. What is your name, please?
