12/15/2010: "It Is All Our Fault"


Dear Editor:

Incredible revelation by Jon Shannon (Related Story ) that the problem with trash revenue is due to our collective island inability to generate enough trash to make the venture profitable. This is interesting, as the government has been trying to get us to reduce the amount of our trash by recycling and other measures for about as long as I can remember.

So the department grew as the trash grew, and when we finally started paying attention and decreased our volume of trash, we now get blamed for the fiscal problems of the SW Department. For some reason I am not seeing the viable logic here.

Hats off to Milene Henley for calling bs on the situation. Maybe we could increase the volume of trash with the some administrative jobs in the can.
