It ain't easy being green

Trenton Mayor Doug Palmer is milking mileage out of applying "green" initiatives to the City as well as his leadership of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.  Hybrid vehicles, using compact flourescent light bulbs are good are good Public Relations fodder but apparently the greening of Trenton stopps there.  An observer has filed the following:

Currently there is NO RECYCLING in City Hall. Nada- no can do. If you seperate the trash, the wonderful garbage people throw it all in one garbage truck. PAPER, CANS, PLASTIC CARTRIDGES, BATTERIES IT JUST DOES NOT MATTER. It all gets thrown in one trash can.

Need proof? Go to City Hall and try to find a yellow, green or blue container in any office, trash area or hall.way.  

Obviously, another case of "Do as I say, not as I do."
