Residents up in arms over trash system in Littleton

Full story: Lowell Sun

The pay-as-you-throw trash system has only been in place for 13 days. Multiply that number by 20 to get a sense of how many residents already want the town to dump its new program.

I think we should give Karr the boot along with the other 3 who voted for this mess. Since when do the voters not count as potrayed by Town Counsel? When did Littleton become a tyranny state?

The best change that could happen is to send Wilkinson, Karr, Knox and Champney on their way and give government back to its people. Throw in Bergman while you are at it.

The decision was unfair. The townspeople did not have a say. I will vote against those on the BOS that voted for PAYT. Karr is arrogant and should not be on any board.

PAYT is fair, unlike the previously abused system. You pay for the trash you generate. The senior rates may need to be adjusted, but for the rest of us, if you have a lot of trash for whatever reason (not recycling, household size, buying a lot more than others, abusers), you should pay to dispose of it. I shouldn't have to subsidize other people's laziness, household size, economic decisions, or contractors. Which was what I was doing before.

Also, as pointed out in other forums, other fees and programs do not go before town meeting vote. There's no need for this to, either.

Finally, why should it be a town meeting vote this year but not in previous years? People accepted the judgement of the BOS in the past without complaint, yet when it doesn't suit them, we have these "the board doesn't represent us" claims. Well, don't include everyone in "us", because the decision does represent me. I'm all for PAYT.
