There are people in our community who think if we shut down recycling at Kezar, the homeless population will dissolve. Is that true? Listen to this community member’s point of view on the connection between recycling and homeless.
The California bottle bill requires recycling to be available within a certain distance from where beverage containers are sold. Without recycling at Kezar, there would have to be recycling elsewhere in the same neighborhood. Kezar recycling is quite likely located further from a residence than any other site in a residential neighborhood of SF as well. Go Figure!
