Don't end twice-weekly trash pickup

  • Follow Letters

Wouldn't you know it! The most efficient city service is being looked at to see where to cut corners.

I cannot believe city officials are even considering eliminating the two-day trash pickup. With another hot summer approaching, the thought of once-a-week service is disgusting! That allows for no forgetting to put out the container on your weekly second day. You'll be tending to two-week old garbage then. Think of the vermin. The Garden City will reek!

Please keep the dependable twice-weekly pickup. Those who choose not to use it twice, just don't put your container out. This will allow the trucks to skip your residence while using the same routes. How easy is that? Keep Augusta clean.

The garbage service is the only thing in RC that works correctly. The problem is the cost. They are robbing us. Don't change the service. Just try negotiating a fair price and quit tacking on EXTRA for the county. Either that or get out of the trash business and bring back the private contractors. I had just as good service at almost 1/3 of the cost before the country decided that trash collection was a revenue stream. Oh yeh, and take the bill off of our property taxes and make it a utility bill like it really should be. Your tactic of trying to hide your ridiculous charge for garbage service on our tax bill is not working. We know you are charging us way more than the actual cost.
