The New Face Of Recycling In Chicago
"Recycling has been taking its lumps in Chicago lately. In March, a Chicago Tribune expose got the city to admit that the recycling rate had fallen to 18%, and that the combined amount of waste going through the city's four high-tech sorting centers had dropped over 30,000 tons from a peak of 126,000 tons in 2000. The Tribune also contended that more and more waste is being sent to landfills owned by politically-connected insiders."
