Letter: New Castle Needs More Garbage Pick-Up Days

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. — The Chappaqua Daily Voice accepts signed, original letters to the editor. Letters may be emailed to

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.
