Recently, we noticed that our curbside recycling was being dumped into a garbage truck with our household trash. We shot this video and sent it to the Boston Department of Public Works. Case opened.
[2008.05.05] City employees replied by email and said a meeting was planned with the collection contractor (Capitol).
[2008.05.09] On the next trash day, household trash was picked up at 6:30AM, and recycling was picked up separately, mid-afternoon.
[2008.05.16] The next week, trash and recycling were also picked up separately. Case closed.
