    I dont know anyone who manages there, or ever has managed. And I dont care if the man on the moon manages.nn I would like it much better if we didnt have to sort things out. Just throw it in the bin, & them do it.nnWhen you have the containers from trash companies, you dont need to sort it. They pick it up, & its done there.nSo why should this be any different?nnI see elderly people there hobbling along, trying to make it to the proper can, carrying their junk. One man on a cane!nNot to mention how the bins are packed 12 ft. high. How are the elderly supposed to throw it in?nJust waay to many problems there w/ management.nnWe need Rumpky. They know how to do it right.

    Well James Warren Has Not Been Manager Since 2006 He Has Only Been In Charge Since August 31,2010 So He Has Never Actually Been A MANAGER There Were 2 Previous Managers Before James Their Names Are David And Rick Bonnette And They Did Just As Good As Jobs As James Or Even Better So James Should Not Get All The Credit For The Recycling Center And How Things Are Going Because Hes Not The Only One Working There And If You Ask Me The Recycling Center Would Be Much Better Off If Rick Bonnette Would Be In Charge Of The Recycling Center And I know This Because Rick Has Better People Skills Than James
