From the story:
"the last round of recycling-only automobile stickers was sold several years ago. "It was like a forever sticker," said Spinner. "You could have moved out of town six years ago and still gone up there." The matter is coming to a head because some household trash has wound up in the recycling bin -- a violation of recycling-only ground rules."

Does everyone get it now? There has always been a fee for a recycling-only sticker. For some reason it wasn't being renewed every year like the trash sticker is.
If you buy a trash sticker you don't need a separate recycling sticker.

Can I get a Bozo sticker for not getting that? Boy, do I feel stupid. I read into it the wrong way... OOPS!

At least I admitted it though.

Ayer Resident, "You already pay to get rid of the trash." With your windshield sticker and Town stickers or the new bags ?. Great !. So you know that you can recycle using your trash sticker ?. So what's the problem ?. Nobody is asking you to pay for a separate green recycle sticker. People who have only a green sticker may be asked to pay for them in the future but still far less than for a trash sticker. "Now you want me to separate it..." ?. NO. We, used to separate #1 clear,#2 colored, paper etc. but now all plastics, paper, cans, glass etc. go into one container. Less work for you. Think you are getting upset over nothing.

I know who you are, and saw you there many times. You were a good worker, very pleasant to be around, always looking out for people. It was a shame what they did to you! The town should have gotten rid of Mary Spinster, and certain selectmen ( don't ask, don't tell!) who see themselves as above the law, and use their positions to elevate themselves, and their friends. They were in one hell of a rush to get you out of that job! Sorry, wish you the best!
