Thank you for all you do! Although the rate increase is high, our trash pickup is a necessary expense for the community. I too believe it will be a mistake to go from three days to two days. Last year, even with three days pick up, we witnessed overflowing trash cans, extra bags laying on the street, and those bags lying around are being picked apart by birds. On one occasion, our neighbors guests had started using our trash cans and recyclable bin for their overflow, which was completely unacceptable! Additionally, the excess waste laying around will invite more feral cats, mice, rats and the occasional fox who visits the trash cans. I too hope you will reconsider for the sake of keeping our neighborhood clean and beautiful.
