And I thought Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard was a sensible Republican with good conservative instincts:
Recycling is one of Mayor Greg Ballard's top priorities, and he wants to give more homeowners an incentive to reduce waste and preserve resources, Ballard spokesman Robert Vane said.
One of his goals . . . is to get curbside recycling at a drastically reduced rate as a way to promote participation in the program," Vane said.
As feel-good nonsense that often does more harm than good, recycling is one of those annoyances we just have to put up with whenever Democrats are in charge. A Republican who goes this overboard on the concept should be dragged to a re-education camp.
