Maplewood City Council Policy & Politics


The Anti-Organization Perspective

After our February 28th meeting, when we voted on whether or not to call a public hearing on the trash topic, the City Council received a two-page list of talking points from Douglas Carnival, the attorney representing the National Solid Waste Management Association, arguing in favor of open hauling versus organization.

I am sure that the NSWMA will be spending some money to communicate their views directly to Maplewood residents in the near future, but if you don't want to wait for something to show up in your mailbox I scanned the document we received and put it online:

You probably won't be surprised to hear that I take issue with many of Mr. Carnival's points. At the risk of turning this into the "organized collection blog," I'll try to respond to as many as I can before our March 28th hearing.
