Why pay for service I wouldn’t use?

Re: Just phone PoCo about garbage (Letters, Oct. 9).
As a single-occupant homeowner who makes a trip to the garbage transfer station perhaps once every two months , I find it would be highly unfair to be taxed on a service that I wouldn’t use.
I already pay taxes for the school levy when I have no children.
There are private companies that provide a collection service. It should not become a municipal issue, and if it does, then homeowners should have the option of opting out.
I think people may also get lazy and not sort the recyclables if they had someone getting rid of it for them.
