San Jose Achieves Ambitious Recycling Goal
Preliminary figures showed that slightly more than half of what San Joseans got rid of - newspapers, cans, glass, motor oil and other items - was recycled last year rather than ending up in a local dump. If the California Integrated Waste Management Board (http://www.ciwmb.ca.gov) verifies the figures, San Jose would be the first California city with 500,000 or more people to reach the goal mandated by 1989legislation. The deadline was last year.
