"The Jefferson City Council approved a controversial contract for trash-hauling and single-stream recycling Monday night.
The decision came at the behest of citizens eager to divert an estimated 12,000 tons of trash annually from the city's landfill, and over the objections of residents who oppose mandatory trash service and fear it's too expensive for many households."

I was also quoted at last Thursday's meeting!
