No Fairness In Trash Tax
Last updated 6/9/2021 at 10:59am
Regarding the $200 tax the county commissioners want to place on every household for garbage disposal, what about those of us in the county who already pay a private company to pick up our trash? It appears to me that we will be paying twice to dispose of trash – once for the tax and then again to the company who must pay to drop the load at the landfill.
We already pay $360 a year to a private company to pick up weekly. Where is the fairness in that?
I guess the commissioners are expecting us to drop our private hauler and then personally take our trash to a collection station since the county does not collect our trash like they do in the city. I recycle everything that I can so I do not think that my trash should cost me $560 a year.
This proposed tax needs more thought put into it.
