  1. What is there to celebrate is Durham reached a 100% with the recycling.
    Total waste of money and time this is what happens when people in Durham don’t get out and vote.
    We get silly elected officials Who hiring pay people to do silly things.
    Is how about celebrating when you reach a real goal like a 100% recycling.
    How about celebrating when you can actually make rules and buy laws that protect the people of Durham.
    How about celebrating when you know how to organize yourself without taking money from others
    The only thing that’s truly being celebrated here is their own agenda to their own pockets.
    Congratulations to all those at the headquarters it is true bullshit does baffle brain.
