fair play. its nice to see someone can see threw smoke and mirrors.
this is the tip of the iceberg . it will all come out in time.stay tuned.
recycling creates about 5 jobs per every 1 county worker it takes to push it into a hole.
and that material creates 5 more jobs at the product manufacturers,truck drivers ,and so on .
which in turn comes back to you in cheaper TV sets to plastic pipe
boxes ,cars, tractors,toys you name it.recycled feedstock is half the cost of raw material.

Chandler says the supervisors told him they hadto write down that many callouts to justify taking home their trucks.
The county acknowledges the supervisors used a formula, so the KING 5 Investigators asked how many times people were called out for actual emergencies. They couldn't or wouldn't tell us.
But, Chandler says he convinced his bosses use of county vehicles was nothing but a perk and ended the practice.
Chandler was also hired right in the middle of a firestorm over wasteful spending on a truck, which the KING 5 Investigators exposed in a report last summer. A $174,000 truck called the Dinosaur sat unused for more than a year. Back then, Chandler told us that it was a mistake.
Yet Chandler says he was reprimanded for embarrassing his boss when he called the truck a mistake. Click here to read an Investigators report on the Dinosaur.
Chandler says he met resistance every time he attempted reform.
He wanted employees to punch time clocks.

Sam Chandler believes he was punished for trying to change a culture of perks and lax accountability. Now he is packing for a move to California, where he's landed a new job after being forced out.
"I was told I could either resign or be fired because, no particular reason was given, but it just wasn't gonna work out," he said.
Chandler says when he was hired in 2006, his mission was to find ways to save ratepayers money.
He says one thing that jumped out was Solid Waste supervisors using county trucks to commute back and forth to work at a total cost of nearly $20,000 a year.
