Mayor Environmentally UNfriendly

The "blue bag" program has been a disaster from the start, what with mixing recyclables in with regular garbage and then RE-sorting it somewhere else and THAT sorting being done poorly, if even done at all. Now the mayor is going to have Ward yards with recycling drop off boxes and bins at strip malls for people to bring their pre-sorted garbage?

City recycling is estimated to be at about 13%. Our prediction - this time next year, it's under 5% unless a major new (expensive) initiative is undertaken.

Check out the Penn and Teller episode of "Bullsh*T" concerning recycling. It's available at Blockbuster for rental. Very interesting info and arguments about how recycling programs are full of, well, bullshit!

There is this old Mexican guy that walks around in my district collecting cans out of garbage cans every morning. I usually save my cans and give it to him once in a while. I'm sure he turns them in for money. Call me a fag for having compassion but hell, this guy is working harder than most other people that live in the district.

Ok, FAG!

Seriously though, that's pretty cool of you. I'm sure that guy appreciates the hell out of that small gesture!

Yeah, there's an old Beaner doing it in my hood too.
Only problem is that he opens every garbage bag in the can and leaves the garbage all over the place!

Yea, Penn and Teller, I'd take their word on recycling. They've been doing the same lame act for 20 years.

Recycling works if done properly.

There's a new recycling area on Federal between 47th and 51st. You can throw all your shit out the window in any color bag you want. The city even knocked down all those quaint apartment buildings there to make room for the drop offs...Just thought I'd help out..

Isn't toting garbage a union job. Where are the pickets.

Maybe now the political hacks at Streets and San won't need three (3) prima donnas on each truck. You know, in the private sector, one (1) person handles the truck and garbage duties. Imagine the cost savings there.

Oh, wait, who would go out and get people to sign those stupid nominating petitions then.

How about that new, crazy bunch of fools that has popped up recently. SOme articles were written about them last week.

I forget what they're called, but they're not homeless, they just dumpster dive and look for food, clothing, etc., saying that we Americans waste too much stuff.

They have rules, such as don't be greedy and leave things for others who may come after you and don't make a mess.

Wouldn't you know it, they are all M/2 and F/2. These folks need some serious help. They probably all grew up in priviledged homes and now feel that this is some way to rebel and show "Mom and Dad" that I'm doing something useful.

KOOKS!

Let's have a literate Police Officer program! Either you learn how to spell correctly or YOU'RE gone! Am I right, Ace? Start hitting those books, Slick. Time is running out! There is more to correct in your comment; but, I decided that it would be best if I left it the way it was.

Before you say anything, I am already fit. Hit those books, I am sure you are the day's entertainment at court or as you would spell it cort!

I slay myself sometimes!

Ha Ha Ha!

You sound a little tense and jealous. You need to relax a little bit son. Here, have a Marlboro and a beer. That'll take the edge off for you.
