Clement - County Board Receives Failing Grades for Recycling

Hello Yupette:

Green Party candidate for County Board Audrey Clement criticized the Arlington County Board yesterday for Arlington County's badly lagging recycling program. Despite the County Board talking about a "Green" Arlington for more than 15 years Arlington is recycling at the same rate as the rest of Virginia. Moreover, there is lax enforcement of Arlington's recycling code for commercial establishments and the County's own recycling rate is an abysmal 10%.

Audrey's analysis of the County Board's recycling failures was so comprehensive all the County Board could do was to agree with her - and promise to do better. You can view Saturday's County Board meeting online at - County Board Meetings.
