Vecchia targets town recycling program
November 10, 2009
SOUTHBRIDGE — Councilor Albert Vecchia injected a little controversy over recycling into what was otherwise something of a routine Town Council meeting Monday.
Citing anonymous complainants, Vecchia claimed recent reports that the town's recycling and trash collection system has been trouble-free were "so far from the truth."
Specifically, he demanded to see the data regarding RecycleBank's collections after claiming he gets numerous calls from people who claim they're "supposed to be getting 2.5 points per pound [of recycling], and they're not even getting a quarter of that."
"We have a major problem here," he alleged.
