Happy 2019! Have you made your New Year’s resolutions? Is one of them to do a better job recycling? Then you’re tuned to the right spot--We’re about a decade in to single-stream recycling in Maryland … How is the system working? And how are we doing? Is the process cost effective? Is recycling worthwhile? We ask Robert Murrow, recycling coordinator at Baltimore City Department of Public Works, about the business of recycling. Plus, DPW recycling collection employee Roland Weeks Jr. describes realities of the work ... and his colleague Welford Lee Johnson Jr. offers some advice. Original airdate 6.28.18
