Just chuck it all in the garbage?

Residents should be able to opt out of municipal garbage pickup, if it comes to Maple Ridge

Re: No need for garbage pickup (The News, Nov. 9)

For those of us who have recycled enthusiastically for many years, the imposition of a tax to cover curbside garbage collection would be an insulting slap in the face. It’s like saying don’t waste time sorting and separating anymore, just chuck it all in the garbage can and the municipal crew will collect it. After all, we have to pay for it anyway, so why bother.

We should at least have the choice to opt out if we wish.
