QyFiredUp - Committee sends new garbage and recycle trucks plan to Quincy City Council - Quincy, IL News - Quinc
WTH do you have to to tie my water usage to my freaking garbage bill ?? When I water my grass or garden, how much solid waste does that produce ? NONE. Have a pay-per-throw program and make those who who generate the most trash pay for it. Is that too simple for everyone ?
whiner1 - Committee sends new garbage and recycle trucks plan to Quincy City Council - Quincy, IL News - Quinc
Hopefully there will never be enough of you people that would just throw everything in a landfill and keep on consuming, to have your way. Responsible citizens recycle on their own and would even pay to do it. The rest of you need a little coaching, prodding, and even public criticism, when you fail to see the value and social responsibility of recycling.
