MidlandToday received this reply to a recent letter from Mark Tucker regarding the new waste collection system:
I also agree with Mr. Tucker.
There are 2 people in our household. We put a bag of garbage out every 2 weeks and the green bin that we have now has plenty of room for the 2 or 3 7.5 litre bags of compost that we make every two weeks.
Also, the large bins would cause a storage problem and I don’t want to look at a large garbage bin when I’m relaxing or entertaining in my small yard.
New bins are a waste of our taxpayer dollars.
