To the editor:
The headline in the Feb. 10 Journal-World reads: “Kansas City company to offer curbside recycling in Lawrence.”
Say it isn’t so!
According to the article, they plan to bring 65-gallon Dumpsters to decorate our curbsides and hold everything — except glass.
Our local people who currently offer curbside recycling can just go out of business. Our (excellent) local recycling center at 34th Street just east of Iowa Street will take all recyclable items, including glass. It is staffed by people from Cottonwood, who appreciate being employed. They are always courteous and helpful, especially to 89-year-olds like me who can’t always read the numbers on plastic containers.
We don’t need that KC firm’s trucks on our streets and their 65-gallon carts polluting our landscape!
