John Weeks talks about recycling in Onondaga County. He noticed that people who were paying weekly for the removal of their garbage were only filling it halfway or not at all. He did notice some overfilling bins on his way home one day though and it made him wonder some questions about recycling. He talks about a meeting that he attended about waste in his area and he found out that newspapers are recyclable and there was 1500 tons in just July.
