I live in a condo community in Midland.

Some weeks I don't have enough garbage to put out.  I save it for the next pickup.

As for recycling, sometimes I put out my counter bin.

I think many need larger BUT I think the homeowner gets to decide WHAT THEY NEED.

I need my car in the garage otherwise my driveway doesn’t get cleared out.  So important for a senior.

Please rethink this. Families yes, but seniors, definitely not.
