Superintendent should champion public education

Garbage cans will haunt us for years

Trash. Garbage. Waste. Rubbish. Refuse. Debris. Whatever you call it, it is a significant problem. Waste that is not disposed of properly can overwhelm our lives.

When you see mountains of uncollected trash on streets and curbs, it is easy to understand how much waste we create every day. Studies consistently show that Americans - yes, we are the trashiest of all - create anywhere from four to seven pounds of trash a day per person ...
