Worcester’s Recycling Dilemma

Worcester’s Recycling Dilemma

So the Worcester City Council took up the issue of the City Manager’s new recycling plan at Tuesday night’s meeting.  Much to the chagrin to all this was not the slam dunk that it was once thought to be. The council postponed the vote until August after Councilor Khrys King threatened to hold the item if was not voted on as proposed coming out of committee, which was not to include the mandate of the clear plastic bag.  He saw…

Food Truck Revolution

Food Truck Revolution
