Re: “Another senior doesn’t want organics recycling,” Letter, Jan. 9
Here I am looking over the letters regarding the curbside organics program with mixed feelings.
I am excited to encourage other people to compost and therefore reduce the waste that goes in the landfill. After recycling and composting there is very little left to throw out.
This also leaves me very frustrated that a lot of us who have already been composting are going to be charged for it, whether we use the bins or not. Is there not a independent company willing to have curbside pickup for those who are interested?
The $5.26 charge doesn’t seem like much but it can be a burden for those of us trying to cut back. I question how this will work as in the past month in my neighborhood someone keeps returning my small bag to me by putting it on my deck so that it doesn’t even get picked up.
I believe most of us would like a say and a choice in the matter. Maybe those of us already doing what we can should receive a credit instead of a charge. Please consider all the options before moving ahead.
