    Will you post a re-cap on the event tomorrow, Walker? This issue is important to me, but I will not be able to make it.

    I’m pretty excited about this — from the few details I’ve seen about, it looks like a good blend of function of program vs cost to implement.

    All I know is if I get a recycling container at the alley nearly the size of the city garbage can I have (that is never, ever, ever, in 4 years, full), I will HUG it.

    Sweet. This is a great thing!
    Unfortunately, the perfectionist in me is thinking that the 90gal and 65gal sitting next to eachother behind the house won’t be of the same size and will look asymmetrical. I know I am a dork.

    What is to prevent people from just not doing it? Will the new cans be deployed to everyone or on request? The first is good but why have tax dollars pay for a can that may not be used? The latter is good too but maybe people won’t get one and thus not use it.

    How is this funded? Will taxes go up?

    How will high density areas (current 300+gal sized trash containers) be served?
