Again, We see the city leaders, looking out for themselves, wouldn't it be the best intrest of the city the leaders to put it up for bid. I guess not, since they think they'll have an endless supply of money. I think if they want to stay with Recology. take the excess out of their pay.

We need to come into the 21st century! All other communities around have a compost bin that is collected along with recycling. I don't understand why Mountain View and Recology cannot do the same for it's residents. We should be moving towards zero waste and by extending the Recology contract, it seems that our city council does not want to work for its residents and move towards a more environmental friendly community.
