Chicago can't even properly manage yard waste collection

Axios Chicago offers more proof of the endemic incompetence of Chicago's municipal government by reporting that yard waste collection, including of course fallen autumn leaves, in Chicago has plummeted 60 percent--even though requests to collect yard waste has soared in the last couple of years.

In Illinois, it's illegal to place yard waste in landfills. Chicago residents with yard waste are supposed to bag their yard waste in paper bags and call 311 so the Department of Streets and Sanitation Department for collection and composting.
