Hello from Sandra Robishaw, and the Waste Prevention Coalition,
The news I received yesterday at City Hall is not so good. In spite of the
hard work of Michael McMahon and the rest of the Committee on Sanitation and
Solid Waste, and the various grassroots organizations and experts who have
shown other ways to get the needed funds, many of the other Councilmen are
not aware that recycling and composting are issues that people care about.
In the last few days before the budget is decided, and the Councilmen vote,
there is something that all of us who think New York City needs to recycle
NOW OR IN THE FUTURE have to do!!
CALL YOUR LOCAL COUNCILMAN TODAY AND TELL HIM THAT NEW YORK CITY NEEDS TO
There are two very good reasons to do this now:
1. It may lead to the recycling and composting programs not being cut, and
being reworked to save the city 35 million dollars.
2.( just as important) If the city cuts recycling, IF WE ARE EVER TO GET IT
BACK, OUR LOCAL REPRESENTATIVES NEED TO KNOW ITS IMPORTANT TO US AS VOTERS
AND CITIZENS NOW !
It is a fact that NYC will have to make some hard choices about money and
many of us have mixed feelings about cutting back on many of the worthwhile
city services. But for the largest city in the US to not be recycling is a
crime. We cannot keep trucking more and more garbage to landfills in other
states, and forcing other people to live with our garbage.
Please make the call to your local City Councilman right now. If you need
assistance in getting their number, go to <http://www.council.nyc.ny.us/>
