I think someone else needs to take that position. Dickson really was on its way to good recycling. We have recently been transfered to Germany. You would not believe how far ahead they are on recycling. They only pic up trash once a week but it works. They even give yoy the trash cans and they have a truck that picks the cans up to dump them. 1 week cardboard/ paper & biodegradables are picked up, next week plastics and trash are picked up, next week biodegradeable, next is plastics and trash and the cycle continues. We don't have to go to the dump. They recycle batteries at all the stores that sell batteries. They have centrally located drop off boxes for bottles and you can also return wine bottles to the store for deposit. Work pretty good. All countries and cities could learn a lesson from others if they only look.
