Trash bin plan not well thought out


I wonder who came up with the idea of doing away with our dumpsters. It is my opinion this would be a horrible mistake.

First let me say it would be more costly to the city to buy all the containers.

And instead of the truck making a stop for every three or four houses, they would have to stop at each residence. I feel that would involve more labor, and I suspect more fuel and maintenance on the vehicles.

There are also major issues with placement of the containers since every one’s driveways are not the same.

What about the people who have to park in the street?

What about the elderly or disabled who can’t or shouldn’t be made to place the containers curbside?

As we know, the wind is going to blow in our community and that is going to cause more trash on our streets when they are turned over. Also the older and handicapped stand a danger of being hurt while moving these things back and forth.

I think we better rethink this proposition.
