YOU FORGOT THE APOSTRAPHE IN YOUR HEADLINE.

"...confirmation that its on the right path..." *it's*

Also, pretty unfair toward Wheeler County. They generate 52 pounds of waste per capita, compared to 1,353 in the Metro area. The total pounds per capita in the entire state is 1,131.

Wheeler County may not be recovering their waste at as high a rate as the metro area, but they are generating 3.8% as much of it.

Graham: no apostraphe belongs in the headline. But one does belong in the first sentence.

Apostrophe, Graham.

Spelling and mechanics aren't your strong points, eh Graham?

The figures Strunk & White cites are actually only the recovered pounds per person. So, recycling is way down for Wheeler County. One needs to look at the disposal per capita figures plus the total generation per captia amounts to see the whole picture. Wheeler county generates far less than Metro, but they don't recovery nearly as much per person.

According to the detailed report, Wheeler County actually generates 646 pounds per person. The figures cited by Strunk & White are the recovered pounds per capita. So, Wheeler County does generate less person, but recycles far less than the Metro area.
