OK, OK, end melodramatic-sensational blog post. It's not completely his fault, seeing how Knox lives in a condominium which doesn't offer recycling to its residents. The city isn't responsible for collecting garbage or recycling from apartment buildings and condos.
An over-the-top environmentalist would challenge Knox for not marching his recyclables to the plant himself, but, really, let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Unfortunately, I can't do it. I must admit I'm headed to recylers hell.
All of the other candidates say they recycle at home, but Chaka Fattah says of his recycling habits: "They're like all Philadelphians, they could be improved." Citywide single-stream recycling would be a help, he said. (One of Fattah's ideas include requiring the city to collect garbage and recyclables from condos).
Michael Nutter says he recycles at home and work, but his home is still on the every-other-week schedule and only paper, glass and metal. Dwight Evans says he sorts his bottles and newspapers at home and Bob Brady said he recycles at home every other week, but wishes he could every week.
I'm tempted to offer a prize to the first snooping gladfly who finds proof that one of the candidates doesn't recycle, but I'll hold back on such yellow journalism.
