Privatizing Recycling: A Conversation with 32nd Ward Alderman Scott Waguespack
Last week, the Sun-Times reported that Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley was planning to privatize the Blue Cart recycling program, now run by the Department of Streets and Sanitation. In this clip, Mike and 32nd Ward Alderman Scott Waguespack reprise a conversation they had on WTTW's Chicago Tonight program. They question the timing of the move--one month before Rahm Emanuel becomes mayor--and talk about whether Chicagoans could left holding the bag for another "parking meter fiasco."
