St. Louis County can't properly finish one bad program before they start up another

The following is a comment submitted today by a county resident.

If they want to use $7.5 mil to educate the public on the hazards of smoking, use that money to educate the values of Recycling that they have fumbled.

There are people who want Recycel carts that can't get them, almost 80% of the people who did get the Reycle Carts do not use them.

Much of the co-mingled single source material is now contaminated and getting worse.

I would say, this ill conceived program needs lots of education.

The Waste/Recycle program is a mess. 10% or higher have never paid a bill, and are being fined by the county. But, no collection efforts are in place. 80% or more don't even use the Recycle Service they are forced to pay for.

People who do want to recycle can't get Recycle Carts. The program was set up to limit truck traffic, but the OPT-Out program causes as many, or more trucks on the street daily. The OPT-Out Program is like segregation, for the special people to dodge a county ordinance.

Bad, Bad, Bad program. Thanks Charlie and Gang.

    Wake up Dooley and County Council.

    Either do this right, and fix it, or end it.

    You made this mess, now clean it up.
