To the Editor,
We have been experiencing the revised garbage pickup schedule for some time now and it is appropriate to grade the change from two to one pickup a week. I give it a D-.
I recall the savings to the town's taxpayers as something like $32/household, so doing this is certainly not a financial issue. Although I do appreciate not having the trucks go through the neighborhood an additional day, the tradeoff is not worth it. There will be a reminder soon of this foolish policy when we endure the extra load of holiday trash. Let's admit it was a bad idea and go back to twice a week service.
