Strangely enough, Savannah doesn't have curbside recycling. When I first heard this fact I was in shock. I knew the South would be different...but come on! Recycling is no longer for tree-huggers alone, even conservatives (well some conservatives) have embraced the notion. The latest is that a local Mayor Wannabe has announced that he filed for a petition to collect signatures to put curbside recycling up for a citywide vote. Interested? Visit www.savannahrecycling.org. Who's to say whether or not Mr. Mayor Wannabe is just jumping on the environmental bandwagon. I'm still trying to figure out who's who on the local political scene, but I'm just happy that someone is making an effort. As the article in ConnectSavannah notes, the Sierra Club Coastal Group put up their own petition online two years ago: http://www.petitiononline.com/cleannow/petition.html Of course, I promptly signed it. You should too - it couldn't hurt!
