Recycling Roadblocks in Clark County

Republic Services is trying to implement a recycling pick-up program in Clark County. It claims it's already had success with trial programs in Henderson. But that means switching to once-a-week pick-up, and some local residents (including a Clark County Commissioner) don't want to give up the twice-a-week system. What options does the trash service have? Are Las Vegans culturally averse to recycling? And compared to cities like San Francisco and Seattle, why is it taking so long to adopt a solid recycling program?

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
