Recycling reprieve, budget, and lots of commendations

Alhambra City Council members will consider Monday night a recycling ban reprieve for Albertson's, a new budget, and commend a number of local achievements, including the Alhambra High baseball team, local dancer Jawn Ha, and boxer Dominic Breazeale.

The recycling reprieve would allow for the center located in the Albertson's parking lot to operate under a conditional permit. Most of the city's recycling-for-cash sites have been forced to shut down in the last year since City Council passed an ordinance placing new restrictions on the centers. The majority of the 100 respondents to an Alhambra Source poll, as of June 11, said that recycling should be left alone. What do you think? Add your opinion if you have not already.

  1. Why would the city council be interested to stop these centers from functioning? They worked just fine so far, people were familiar with them and knew about their options. Take atlanta junk removal, it came with a functional recycling model for the community and it keeps the formula even today.

  2. Isnt Alhambra supposed to be business friendly? I guess only when it benefits them in their pockets. That site has been functioning for many yrs & now council is saying they are worried about accidents& cleanliness ? REALLY?!
