I am writing in regard to Lancaster city garbage pick-up service. First of all, Lancaster is a country hick town with no grocery store and no entertainment for anyone - the list could go on and on. My garbage was not picked up last week due to it not being bagged, per a city employee when I called City Hall.
One can had cardboard in it, one can had individual bagged garbage and another can had one big bag of garbage in it. The cans did not have lids, because in the past the garbage people threw garbage lids on the ground and they blew away. I guess they took one look at the one can that had cardboard in it and decided all was loose. I had put leaves from the street on top of the cardboard so it would not be on the street.
They say they want us to recycle. Well, I've got a few questions: Who's making money on our cardboard or recyclables? Shouldn't our rates go down if we have to do everything like bag our garbage? I think this is just going to encourage dumping again.
