The Sierra Club (and partners!!) is making a commitment to bringing back curbside recycling to New Orleans!! The upcoming election (February 6, 2010) is the way to do this. We need to make recycling a FRONT AND CENTER visible issue for the election and the next administration, whoever it is. We think we will succeed, because the time is right—there is support. A steering committee has been formed to guide this effort. We met earlier this week and brainstormed like crazy. Lots of great ideas! Now we need to make it happen.

There will be open meetings on the 4th Monday of each month (time and place to be announced) for community input.

PLEASE post your ideas on how to make it happen to this blog. I will post updates here also. Spread the word.

It's terrible that they don't have curbside recycling in New Orleans. Follow the example of Seattle, have curbside recycling and yardwaste recycling. Then, charge people for the size of trash can.
