If you ask me I think every

If you ask me I think every community should have a metal recycler. The waste we produce is growing exponentially, we should treat recycling matters as a priority. I read some statistics about the recycling trends in our country on this GreenerEarthLTD.co.uk source and I am now optimistic that we can actually control our waste based on the new technologies.

Owens just another slum lord

Maximizing income from substandard rental property is his game. Why did the city inspections approve the property at the start if it was substandard? Let me guess.......former city councilperson with close ties to local government, now powerful and influential politician......Oh, it's clear now.....need inspection approval for rental property, a quick phone call and short conversation, then, wink, wink, nod, nod, say no more and it's a miracle! The property suddenly becomes acceptable! Rental money flows in and all is right and good in the slum lord world and the property continues it's deterioration without hope or intention of any maintenance/upkeep.
