The democrats aren't interested if helping anyone except their rich buddies. Notice how everything the only problems they "solve" are ones that raise taxes? Yet they can't fix a pothole.

This is a good idea. The problem is that to avoid paying $10 per month, people will just dump their trash at the beach or at the local park.

The fee has to be tied to something like sewer and water fees. Pretty much everyone used water and the toilet, and pretty much everyone dumps trash.

The C&C should make an overall fee for basic neighborhood services bundled together.

I don't disagree that we already pay for services.
I'm suggesting there be a consolidation of billing for basic services provided by the city. Why should we all have to pay for water, sewer, trash as if they are all billing from different businesses?
Either that, or let people dump their trash at collection stations. We've done that in Kona for YEARS, Why should Honolulu be special?

Correction. HOMEOWNERS already pay for services. Likewise, tying it in to sewage fees unduly targets the workers of the state, people that take responsibility for their families. Apartment dwellers won't get a additional tax applied, and the ones on welfare certainly won't suffer, they never do. Yet, these people generate more trash then the rest of us because they live a hand-to-mouth existance anyways.

Landlords would have to pay the trash fees, not tenants.
Also, not all renters are on the welfare roles as you appear to surmise. Many if not most are hardworking taxpayers, too.

We have dumping stations also, but they are poorly run and people with trash are often turned away. They end up dumping their trash on the road. Honolulu isn't "special," we are urbanized and crammed in like roaches under a sink and have developed the same habits. Do you really expect people to drive to a dump like in the old days? They will simply dump it in the closet place they can throw it. All the back roads are already routinely used as dumping grounds, and we have no need to do that. People would have to be raised to not be self-centered pigs, and that isn't going to happen.

Bullcrap! They are called "transfer stations" they are kept clean and they provide a great service. Every now and then go outside and have a "look see".

Here we go with our first attack from Honolulu. I use the stations often and this is my observation. They often turn people away because the dumpsters are not emptied often enough. Many times people are turned away because "the trucks are running late." Other times the stations are not open on time and people are left waiting outside a locked gate. Many times I've seen where angry customers dump just outside the gate and leave, out of frustration. The tire dumpsters are left overflowing for a week at a time, so tires end up along the roadway. There is a two-tire-per-day limit on tires, but certain people are allowed to dump them by the truck-load. It should be all or not at all. The consumers have ALREADY PAID the disposal fee when they bought the tires, but the money disappeared down the,"State General Fund Blowhole" for thirty or forty years, and the recycler is blamed for these delays, but exactly "who" that is, remains an unsolved. problem. Only an idiot would return home with his old tires. They will dump them at the parks, and on the roadways. If you go outside and have a "look see" you can see for yourself. I suggested a small bounty be paid on old tires until they are removed from the streams, etc, but the state isn't interested because they can't figure how to cash in for themselves by doing something good. At one station in particular, they allow a local commercial maintenance company to fill the "green waste" dumpster with a days worth of clippings because he is related or friends with the attendant. The sign clearly says, "NO COMMERCIAL WASTE."

THE OTHER SOLUTION IS CALL THE PROPER AUTHORITIES ;
TAKE PICS; GET OTHERS THAT COMPLAIN LIKE YOU TO KEEP CALLING UNTIL YOU GET A RESPONSE.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE THEIR RESPONSE TAKE IT TO THEIR HIGHER UPS.

You don't name this transfer station cause it may not exist. Everyone one understands this is an anonymous forum DO YOU.
