The City of New York is spending more on collecting and exporting recyclables than regular waste, as per a report released last Thursday. The New York City Independent Budget Office, a fiscal watchdog organization backed by the city, found that the city projected the total amount of solid waste would grow over a period of 20 years, as the population rose. According to the strategy, which was set up 10 years ago, the amount of recyclables would also expand. The city entered into long-term
