San Francisco's Recycling Claims Are Garbage - Bloomberg View

"Remarkably, what Recology did was almost legal under California law. The use of construction waste and other reclaimed materials as “alternative daily cover” in landfills is legal, and so is counting the practice as recycling -- so long as the materials have been ground into a “fine” powder. Recology, however, failed to do that, and thus it's on the hook to pay back $1.36 million.

You'd think that San Francisco’s Department of the Environment, which paid out those inflated bonuses, would have been supportive of, if not thrilled at, the verdict. But, curiously, it wasn't. According to the San Francisco Guardian, the department’s representative to the trial hoped that the case would be unsuccessful."

Not surprised

Recology is the brand but I must wonder when all the merger action was going on, who really ended up running the show (e.g. the mob?).
