WDT: Recycling Change Slowly Picks Up Support

      A local government is publicly backing a countywide change to single stream recycling. The Village of Black River has taken the stance which is being promoted by the local landfill operator but is opposed by Jefferson County due to cost.

Mayor Graham started pushing for this and it is catching on.
The county is on the wrong side of history. Graham is ahead of his time when it comes to garbage.

Seems like they want to force people to recycle,but refuse to make it convenient as it will cost them something.Appears they want to have their cake and it too.

What I want to know is if there are any programs out there to make trash disposal free? These city trash bags may not cost a lot for the one percenters, but for the poor it adds up to a lot. The poor deserve "access to" sanitation. Why do we charge for it? It should be a right like cellphones and spending your benefits cards at strip clubs. And who pays in the end? The taxpayers, who see bags of trash strewn down the streets and old tires dumped anyplace no one was looking. We need to bring trash disposal within the reach of the middle class budget. We cannot continue to allow young single mothers to be forced to choose between trash bags or a new tattoo. Feel the Bern?

I get a chuckle out of COW Council member Cody, How will he as a business owner vote on garbage collection at City Budget, knowing full well he stands to pick up a few customers depending on how he votes...
