The cover of this week's Time Out Chicago cleverly recognizes Earth Day (April 22) by reminding you to "Recycle This Magazine." While periodicals may be among the paper items that Chicago residents can be diverted from the dump, only 13 per cent of city households can be bothered. The battle for blue bag banishment never seems to end, but the latest development was today's announcement that there will be a later announcment of the communities that will join Beverly in the successful curbside collection pilot program.
