The August 7 issue of Waste News has a story ("Down to the wire: Opposition ot Kansas
City curbside recycling proposal gains momentum as election approaches," on p. 4).
According to the article, there is an August 8th referendum in Kansas City (due I
recall to their unique constitutional requirement for voter approval of a local tax
increase) to authorize a curbside recycling program. Unfortunately, the group, Freedom
Inc, a political club active in the balck communities, decided to oppose the recycling
effort. "The group's primary concern is the added cost to the city's senior citizens."
Does anyone know what's actually happening there?
