TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! TALKING TRASH ABOUT THE NEW RECYCLING PROGRAM @ CITY HALL TO START THE KANSAS CITY WORK WEEK!!!
Our Kansas City bloggy community wants to save the planet at all costs . . . That's why KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS were FIRST to bring word of the new City Hall recycling program and how workers are raging about their waste baskets being confiscated.
Now . . .
THANKS TO CITY HALL FOR GIVING US AN EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS LOOK AT THE DEETS OF THE NEW CITY HALL RECYCLING POLICY AND THE WAR AGAINST WORKER WASTE BASKETS!!!
READ THE NEW CITY HALL RULES AND REGS RIGHT HERE FIRST AND ONLY ON TKC!!!
This is important because we have heard that a great many people are cracking wise about how this was handled down @ 12th and Oak.
Still . . . City Hall spokesman Chris Hernandez brings a bit of reason to the sitch:
Here's his official quote on the matter:
"About the city’s adjustment to trash and recycling collection inside City Hall, I have attached a copy of the information card that was distributed to employees.
There is no written policy, this was simply a decision about how to best deploy resources while encouraging sustainability efforts.
As for the personal trash cans you referenced, there were only 3 or 4 personal trash cans gathered up by the cleaning crews, and employees have been told how to reclaim those."
Fair enough . . .
However . . .
HERE IS A BIT MORE REAX ON THIS MATTER FROM A KANSAS CITY INSIDER REPORTING THAT NEW RECYCLING EFFORTS AREN'T PROVIDING MUCH OF AN INCENTIVE TO SAVE THE PLANET!!!
"Recycling has dropped dramatically as people are using recycle cans for trash. So when they make the daily trip to the central trash area, the whole can gets tossed in the trash, recycling and all. Still, the powers that be don't want us to have trash cans at all. Even if we empty them every day.
Admittedly, stopping global warming is a complicated process that involves a great deal of sacrifice and careful planning . . . We respect the effort from City Hall to cut down on waste even if the implementation left a bit to be desired and we're also sure City Hall workers want to stop the polar ice caps from melting too BUT don't want to pull janitor duty on top of all their other responsibilities.
