Garbage in, garbage out

Something I've known for years is in the news: Recycling wastes money.
First Coast News reports the city is losing millions a year recycling garbage.
The reason is simple. It's garbage. Few people buy garbage and those who do don't pay much for it.
But it is a PC thing to do, so city officials waste our money doing it.
With the mayor preparing a budget for next year and crying crocodile tears over "shortfalls" in revenue -- usually prep for raising taxes -- this would be a good time to jettison this program.
But the libs will demand that we save the Earth by continuing to waste our money.
Proponents claim the city will run out of space if it has to bury the garbage. But that's what they have to do with it if nobody buys it.
