Good, maybe I'll get an answer to the question of what to do with the old recycle bins. Got no answer from email's or the mayor or Mr. Marchand on this...

Are you really asking that question? You can't think of one thing to do with them on your own without asking politicians? Wow.

If you received your totes AND you received the paper information with it, you have your answer.

However, it's also on the city's website:

http://www.leominster-ma.gov/health_departmen...

Here's the pertinent text:

"What can I do with my old recycling bins and rubbish pails?

If your recycling bin is in good condition we ask that you bring it back to the Health Department so they can be used in a school or other municipal building. If they are not in good condition or you cannot bring them to the city hall you can put them into your Blue Recycling tote. The rubbish barrels can be used for your leaf and yard waste containers or you can put them into the Recycling tote."

Time for you to get lost moron. I an others are tired of your repeated complaints about the Mayor, Building Inspector, Police Chief, and other officials of the City. If you don't like living here, MOVE!

Leominster is a well run City, and people like you should either shut up or move out. Oh, why DON'T YOU RUN FOR OFFICE if you are so smart?

Burgess, why don't you use the old style crate for a flower box. Or tie a bunch of them together and make a raft, and sail away from here.

Burgess is a clown
Burgess is a jerk
Burgess is a cry baby

PS take that other yoyo Luther Manning away with you, another "person with too much time on their hands". Get a job, get a life!

I have no problem with the new totes. If I go over my quota on trash, Ill just find someone elses dumpster to put it in, and if its locked, I'll just dump it on thr ground next to it...problem solved!

This is week one in our neighborhood - judging by what I saw as I left my house this morning a lot of people are going to have a lot of stickers on their bins. I like the idea - I just wish everyone would take time and read the enclosed material so they know what to do! I have a feeling this new system is going to take the city time to get used too! I was wondering what to do with my old bins - I LOVE the flower pot idea. Me and my kids are going to do it this weekend!

Burgess -

As Harry Truman said "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen". Thus, if you are unhappy living in Leominster, move out. Leominster is one of the very few communities in MA that has a low tax rate, no layoffs, and a excellent mayor running things.

Mr. Marchand, With all due respect, the poeple of Leominster who make an effort to recycle should not have to listen to your whining!
If one chooses to have a large family they shouild not use my taxes to pay for trash. My tax dollars can be spent for much more useful items.
How about some cross walks an Merriam Ave? Maybee some parking enforcement at the corner of West St. and Hall St. Side walks are for pedestrians trying to walk to the high school, not for your buddies diner patrons!

We need to learn how to reduce the amount of trash we generate. Maybe we should start a posting on that topic. Last week I was in Ireland and on rubbish day the people had at most one large rubbish bag, many had the equivalent of a small grocery bag.

How are group homes and shelters going to comply with the trash guidelines? Some put out as many as 6-8 trash cans per week, which is understandable when the home has 15+ residents. I can't see them
using 2 bins.

Parking enforcement is the duty of the "Traffic Control Officer" of the Leominster Police Department. Parking on the sidewalk is a violation of traffic laws.

Then again, Some City Councilors are "above the law", as seen many times in the past.

The abuse is coming to an end. Let's start thinking of the cost and impact on the enviornment .Everyone in all the other towns pay for every thing they put in the rubbish. Be smart enough to know when your getting a deal

Mind your own business. Someday you'll end up in a nursing home or some other shelter.

Then again, drive by his house on trash collection day and count the number of barrells he puts out. I've seen the trash collection companies making giant pyramids with them after they empty them.
He's gotta prove that he's a "value added" elected official. And, yes - I was making a joke about his added value.

It could do him good to eat less and make less trash. He will also fart less and reduce his very large carbon flatulence footprint.
