I can’t comprehend the logic and reasoning of some elected leaders and letter writers regarding trash and recycling. Those who want to recycle will make an effort to go in their garages and place items in a bin. What is the difference if it is a particular bin or a large bulk container? Unfortunately, some are lazy and just toss recyclables in the trash.

It is not necessary for a once-a-week pickup of recycling. But trash collection should be twice a week due to the volume and foul odor of bagged food and pet waste, etc. Decrease in service with no rate reduction? Real intelligent.
