Based on the success of curbside recycling in the Beverly neighborhood, Ald. Joe Moore is proposing an end to the blue bag program within the next few years. The Tribune quotes him as saying, "It's time to have Chicago join the large cities across the nation in adopting a legitimate recycling program," while the Sun-Times account focuses on arguments about the expected cost. Currently, a mere 8% of household rubbish is diverted for recovery.
