  1. With this City’s CARP Program, and its concern for the climate & environment, this year’s “recycling event” is so contrary to the above pursuit. Indicated on the map, but not shown in the overhead, is the double row of cars from Church St. creeping down Dodge & then up Lake to enter the ETHS lot. In 2021, this took me at least 45 minutes, AND I’ll never do it again! The damage to the atmosphere belched by these vehicles on a hot July day is worse than 10 years of all gas-powered garden equipment used. This also involves scads of city & police personnel, the placement of barriers, equipment AND the inconvenience to those abutting the school on the south. The Sustainability & Resiliency Person, and other staff, must 1st cancel & rethink this. I suggest that the old Oakton Recycling Center be reopened to serve the south side. The City’s Equipment Complex south of the Civic Center, can serve the north end. They should be made available to the public, say 9am to 6pm. Labeled dumpsters can be provided with 1 or 2 people to assist with drop-offs. This could continue thru July & August, with dumpster replacement and disposal as needed. Our earth will appreciate this!
