County Steps Up on Commercial Recycling
According to a Capital report, the County Executive has submitted a bill to the County Council to expand curbside recycling service to businesses in the County. Already, 70 percent of homes in the County recycle, but the cost of additional recycling service has kept most businesses from joining in.
The cost of the program has not yet been made public, but it's an idea whose time came years ago. It's good to finally see an earnest effort to get it implemented.
A public hearing will be held on the bill at the February 19th Council meeting.
