This month the City of Madison marks a half-century for its first-in-the-nation curbside recycling program:
When I came into this business, I was a tree-hugger; now I’m an international commodity broker.
— George Dreckmann, Recycling Coordinator (1990–2016)
It’s ongoing progressive-minded initiatives like these that make me proud of the place I’ve come to call home. I can’t wait for the City to build an anaerobic digester that propels that legacy into the future.
