Garbage pickup, but fewer times a month
Editor, The News:
Re: You want to pay more taxes? (Letters, Feb. 6).
I do not want to pay more taxes for garbage pick up.
But I wish the garbage companies would give us an option to pick up fewer times than once a week.
I phoned around and they all said that you had to choose once a week. One even said that was good as you could fill the can right up.
My issue is I try to recycle as much as possible and compost, leaving far less garbage. I do not need weekly garbage.
I own a small economic car, making putting a garbage can in it impossible, making me count on others to take it for me. That may not always be an option.
I think the garbage companies are losing business by not offering the option of fewer pick-ups during a month, a more green option.
They offer more and bigger, but not less.
