Long Beach started participating in an aluminum can recycling challenge with other cities six years ago. One of the competing cities, according the the Web site, “All things Long Beach,” is Los Angeles.
I checked L.A.’s Web site and found no mention of it on the home page, nor could I find a press release or any other sign that the mayor took on the Cans for Cash challenge. Too bad. It’s a good way to get more people — particularly children — involved in recycling.
