Still looking for a solution to the low participation in the city's recycling program that doesn't involve curbside pickup (an expensive solution, as reported yesterday), Streets and Sanitation Commissioner Michael Picardi has introduced a plan to install recycling drop boxes in a dozen wards, so that people will have to cart their recyclables to the drop points in their neighborhood. And when THAT doesn't work, perhaps we can look forward to a recycling program where people mail their trash to the recycling plant.
