City of Cleveland to discontinue curbside recycling, leaf pickup

CLEVELAND (Nov. 25) -- Cleveland Mayor Jane L. Campbell plans to discontinue
the city´s curbside recycling program and leaf pickup to help close the
city´s $61 million budget deficit.

Campbell presented her budget proposal to the City Council on Nov. 24. The
city will add drop-off locations at recreation centers for residents to
recycle, Campbell said. Paper recycling also will continue to be available
at the city´s schools, zoo, parks and other locations throughout the city.

The city is cutting 667 full-time and 67 part-time jobs to balance its
budget by the end of 2004. Other cuts include vital city services such as
police, fire and emergency personnel.
