SHOULDN'T THE city start the Cash for Recycling Program in the very areas of Philadelphia where the recycling campaign started?

As I recall, some sections of the city that are now at the top of the list for the CASH rewards, are the very sections where government officials experienced major difficulties "motivating" the local citizenry to participate in any recycling program. Now that there's cash involved, what's a city to do?

The Streets Commissioner should have a timeline for when sections were activated into the recycling program. This would clear up any confusion about cash dispersal, no? Unless, of course, the prioritizing for CASH rewards was based on overall filth and general squalor.
