Sound Off: Curbside recycling

How much will businesses, like the ones on Massachusetts Street, have to pay as part of the city’s proposed curbside recycling program?

Under the current proposal, businesses are not included in the city’s curbside recycling program. Ed Mullins, the city’s director of finance who oversees utility billing, said businesses with commercial trash accounts would not have a curbside recycling fee added to their monthly trash bills.

Many of the larger retailor's actually incinerate their recycleable good. Adding more debris to the air. But, where are the granola small thinkers?? They are at city hall trying to bully the commissioners to pick on the tax payers. Idealist with small minds.

The granola's like to bash big business, I am surpised they are not on the wagon to force downtown business' and other mfg, retail giants etc to recycle. Like I have been saying all along. This is a load sponsored by the loud mouth few to force the other citizens to play their game. IF ONE PERSON IS REQUIRED THEN ALL SHOULD BE REQUIRED. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Does this mean they aren't participating in forced recycling, or does it mean they're not paying for it? Neither seems fair, since they are likely one of the largest segment of waste generators in town.

Some downtown area businesses have been recycling for at least the past ten years, without prodding from the city.
