How many people disagree with the Mayor's message concerning the garbage pickup? I thought he was suppose to do what the people wanted but evidently not. All his message was about was what HE wanted and what HE decided so because HE wants it done we have to start carrying it to the curb. I carry 3-5 bags of recycling a week to the curb but will stop the recycling after this. He shoud do what the people want not what HE wants.

Not politics but rather a business decision. Not just Mayor but Alderman voted. They were elected to make hard decisions when faced with them; not to be politically popular. Or perhaps raising taxes would be better choice? Then we could continue to be pampered with behind home pick-up! If you don't want to continue recycling that's your choice, it won't hurt Mayor but WILL damage the environment.

Yes the Alderman voted on the garbage decision but only after the Mayor decided to bring it before the board. I hope they all get voted out in the next election as well as the mayor. I had rather the taxes be raised for something to help the people of Trenton than for a new city hall which will be the next thing coming out of the mayor's office. I am sure his office will face the court house so he can sit in it and look at his pedestrian park.

Let's just put it out there- that 2.5 million the city borrowed(for a town that's supposed to be broke) is REALLY for a new city hall. SOME improvements WILL be made with it, but the real motive for this money is a city hall that we don't need. The old one serves it's purpose just fine, doesn't it?

I was surprised to see there isn't a Christmas tree in the courthouse yard or in front of city hall. As far as the "pedestrian park" is concerned, in my opinion, it is just something a prissy pants would spend money on!

So, you disagree that these wheel bins are necessary and one reason is because you do not want to carry it to the curb.

Fair enough. It's your right to disagree. What are you going to do with your garbage then? Carry it to the landfill or let it pile up at your house?

Any half-reasonable person would realize that, unless the curb is more than 50 yards from where you would leave the wheel bin the rest of the time, this is not a hardship. And, because the wheel bins will ultimately be used on a garbage truck that picks up the bin and tips it into the back, there won't be any need to bag trash unless you want to. That's easier in my book, for sure.

But maybe you don't see it that way. You might even see it as th city telling you how to live your life, or a dictator telling you that you will be forced to do this or else.

I don't agree with that, but you have the right to have that opinion.

You can even exercise your right to choose to stop carrying recycle bags to the curb.

That sounds like PC to me.
No, not "politically correct".
Petulant and Childish.

No, I don't think that the wheel bins are necessary. I may be able to wheel mine to the curb but what about all the elderly that are not able.

What difference will it make if I take it to the landfill or let it pile up I am still going to be charged .But were we given that choice?

Oh yeah used on a truck that picks them up and tips them in to empty them.ONLY if they are sitting exactly like they want them sitting , facing a certain direction and in a certain spot. Ask anybody that lives in Bradford about the trash pickup.Good idea not bagging it so it will blow out as it is being emptied,that will be another mayor's message when trash is all over the streets.

I don't know how you can not see this as being told to do something by the city because nobody had a vote but the mayor and the board.The people should have had a say in the matter before it was forced on us.

Yes,it is my choice to not recycle anymore.

The rest sounds like BS, do I need to spell that out for you?

Boy, there are some paranoid idiots out in the "big world" of Gibson county.

I wish I had the time to spend agonizing about which kind of method I was being compelled to use to have my garbage removed.

Garbage. That's what it is. Pure garbage.

and as I wrote before, Petulant and Childish. Some people will never grow up.
