Don't be surprised if, after an awkward, horrific rollout, and an utterly failed plan, with garbage strewn in every alleyway and vacant lot in the city, Mayor Paul Dyster's new trash ordinance is amended to permit inspection of trash for people who fail to recycle.
It will be called necessary to salvage the plan.
Rather than admit the plan was flawed to begin with, because it did not take into consideration that the average family throws out more than what can fit inside a 64 gallon tote per week, when it does fail, it will be said that trash inspections will be necessary to enforce recycling.
If the plan wasn't planned to one day enforce recycling, why make the refuse totes so small in the first place?
If and when enforced recycling comes to Niagara Falls, remember you read it here first.
And that it was brought to you not by City Administrator Donna Owens, but by Mayor Paul Dyster who is running for reelection next year.
Owens works for Dyster, not vice versa.
