we need to work harder on keeping recycled goods out of our trash.this is the reason canada has so much garbage we just seem to throw every thing away.

as of last month, nyc reenstated its recycling program- which it had abandoned for a year due to the fiscal situation here... its nice to throw out several pounds less of trash every time i take out the garbage.
wonder which is worse, garbage-wise... america or canada?

It isnít any wonder Toronto had problems with garbage because of its by weekly pick up

I love how huge that television looks. I don't know if you were trying to send a message with that photo, but it says to me, "TV is everywhere. You can't escape it." That's increasingly true, and I hate it. But that's not to say I hate the photo. Actually, I think it's pretty awesome.

Wow, seeing the photo with the T.V says a lot about our society today. Maybe the person throwing it was trying to relay the message "T.V is trash".

it's the angle. that photo has been taken from ground level so it looks the same size as the houses. quite rightly. tv is dangerous because it looks so little and passive and it seems to be 'just' banal. it's passive aggressive though. grrrrr

The issue is to soon become a public health danger. Does the rights of the few outweigh the rights of the many? Ronald Reagan put an end to the ATC workers' (illegal) strike by having them all fired.

...Reagan also created Reaganomics, which put the country from 900 billion dollars in debt to 2.8 trillion dollars during Reagan's tenure, and has steadily increased since then. As far as im concerned there is no illegal strike. Unions have the power if they stick together, fighting for safety, salary, sick days, whatever...
Unions are of the working class, for the working class, and if they don't stick together they get poorer salaries and working conditions (according to history, theres a reason for the sit down strikes in Flint, and huge mining issues before unions)
And you think your going to replace 24,000 "lump-sum", and have your garbage picked up the next day by someone who needs a job? think about the turn around time to interview, train and get someone on the job the next day safely and effectively ..... not to mention 24,000 of them....and if its a strong union they would all have the pride to be part of that "lump-sum" that gets fired and watch your garbage pile for the next 2 months before they know what to do and chances are hire them back
Im aware of essential services and such but put up with a little garbage for a month and hope that joe blow garbage man gets a couple extra bucks an hour (or sick days carried over..) to take care of your waste....if they think its worth fighting for then i support them
