    While this is handy, doesn’t this go against the definition of ‘single source’ recycling that the mayor funded and used as a justification for increased property taxes?

    Its just pr or city hall-and jst as bad as having street sweeping during rainy days which does nothing but spread the trash around.

    Can a certain mayor who panders to developers and yuppies be recycled, too?

    PUH-Leeeeze?

    mememe, no, I know of no single STREAM recycling system that includes hazardous or e-waste — that always has to be handled separately. E-waste collections are a desirable service to those of us who have accumulated dead cell phones & hard drives and want to dispose of them responsibly. (And we don’t even have to like this mayor to appreciate the service.)

    Also, regular monthly hazardous waste collection resumes for the summer this weekend, and next month will include a special styrofoam packing material collection – schedule here -
