What is wrong with the ljworld? I tried to vote in this poll, and it stated:

"We didn't record your vote, because you or someone from your computer's address or network has already voted."

I'm sorry, but I'm the only one who bothers to get on the ljworld. I wonder how many other's got a similar message.

None2, I'll send a note to our tech people to see if they know anything.

Perhaps the question should be "How many people who will be required to participate want a city mandated program?"

Over half our population are not affected by the proposed program to date.

why can't the journal world get focus group or hire a consultant like the city does instead of bothering us with all these questions

This should be a choice for residents of Lawrence, not a mandate!!!

Just so the city does not put existing recyclers out of business. Let the consumers select their choice of recycler.

Instead let's have PAYT = Pay As You Throw = let the users pay accordingly. The best choice for trash. http://www.epa.gov/osw/conserve/tools/payt/

Certainly not the plan they are proposing.

I think the City of Lawrence needs to get out of the trash & recycling business. It would save them thousands in work comp premiums as they are complaining about lately. Let the professionals do it, they already have insurance plus it would give the residents the choice of who they want to hire. In other words, let the private sectors provide this service. I'm tired of being forced to abide by the City of Lawrence on everything.......

Why put local people out of work? How is that best for local economics.

Why send more local dollars to KCMO metro? Sending local dollars away from the community is not smart business.

Private industry will not save any money for they are not in the business of saving money. Not only that quality of service will drop.

How will locals have a choice of who they want to hire?

My choice is the City of Lawrence setting up PAYT a service that should pay for itself thank you.
