Once-weekly trash not bad

  • Follow Letters

I am getting weary of all the whiners in Augusta who keep complaining about one-day sanitation service. North Augusta has been doing it for so long, I can’t remember what it was like before. It gets a little hairy around Christmas and Thanksgiving because we all have extra trash then.

For $15.90 a month we get once-a-week garbage and recycle service. They charge $3.60 a month to recycle our stuff, but they give us free recycle bags, and I make sure I fill mine up with recyclables to give them plenty to do for my $3.60.

Augusta could model their services after ours, but then nobody could whine anymore.

Ms. Young

It is not so much that the city has gone to one day a week service we the citizens are still paying $310.00 a year for the service.

If they are going to cut the service down to one day a week they should reduce the price we pay to reflect that.

Cherry, I have about 100 unused rolls of those recycle bag you mentioned. I plan to sell them back to the City of North Augusta soon.

" keep complaining about

" keep complaining about one-day sanitation service"

Ms. Young, will you PLEASE get this straight? Most of us are NOT whining about once a week service. MOST OF US are complaining about being charged the same thing we were paying for twice a week service and now are only getting once a week service. WE ARE SAYING THE PRICE IS TOO HIGH FOR WHAT WE ARE GETTING. If I was getting once a week service for $15.90 then I would not be WHINING either. That is about what once a week trash service should cost. Not the $25.50 that we are currently paying. When they are putting it on your annual property tax bill there is a BIG difference between $190.80 and $306.00

THANK YOU FOR POINTING OUT THAT WE ARE BEING SCREWED AND ARE PERFECTLY JUSTIFIED IN WHINING ABOUT HOW MUCH WE ARE BEING CHARGED.

And I do not care that you are getting weary because it is not you who are being robbed for a MANDATED municipal service that MOST of us were getting from a private contractor for about the same thing YOU are CURRENTLY paying.
