Scene and Phillip Morris Agree: Super-Recycling Cans Questionable

Look, we need to talk, I know you havent been taking out the plastics.

Scene shouldered a little flak from readers earlier this month when we questioned Cleveland’s decision to hard-wire recycling bins across the city so The Man can tell if you’re taking out your cans and plastics on a regular basis. Our good government approach was swatted by the environmentally-minded amongst us who believe the program is a smart way to secure long-term savings.

But we weren’t the only ones saying what the f*uck. PD scribe Phillip Morris used his column inches earlier this week to beg the same question; Morris even goes as far as to throw around the label “garbage gestapo” — nicely said, sir.

Morris and Scene agree that, in his words, the program “just seems at odds with what should be the foremost priorities for a city that is physically unsafe, infrastructurally unsound and economically depressed.” Amen.
