Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
As an Oakland resident, I have a different point of view. I don't mind that
people pick up recyclable cans and bottles because Waste Management
has changed their pickup procedures. Now Oakland residents have to
put all recyclables (paper, plastic, bottles and cans) in one container and
it is dumped into a large truck. They say that they sort this in the Davis
St. plant but I am sure much of the recyclables ends up in the landfill.
So poor people trying to make a penny should be able to help themselves.
