do you still pay taxes on the house you vacated?
law says trash is required to be paid regardless of usage or not, same thing goes for elderly people who pay the same rate as a young family, a young family who puts out 40 times the trash an elderly person does

Why, paying your "taxes" is patriotic. We should be paying even higher taxes. Ask Biden. As for me, I demand higher taxes on everybody and everything.

Walnutport really does have some serious trash removal issues. I know of people in that town and they live on a road that is the line between Northampton and Walnutport, and the road is never cleaned. Due to all the snow it has been a sheet of ice for weeks and they refuse to pick up any of the garbage for 3 weeks. When Walnutport Borough was called, because the neighborhood is in fear of getting rats and mice and God knows what else, the woman at the borogh office said it was no big deal and to get over it. I'm sorry but I think that is an issue. They want people to pay almost double what they use to pay the trash and now they don't even pick it up! I wonder how much the woman at walnutport borough building would like to have trash sitting for weeks attracting all kinds of rats and mice? I see no problem with people paying for the trash removal but then I would say it sure as heck should be picked up weekly and not setting for over 3 weeks!
