I would like to go to bags like other cities.

Why wasn't the public invited to give opinions!

Capitol Waste told the mayor they wanted the barrels,
so that's what we got.

Maybe if GTA opened a store selling blue trash bags,
the mayor would have gone that way instead.

My 76 year old mother is moving trash bins from the back of her house out to the street every week, they should have alloted bags for people who are disabled and elderly in everett, they just made it easier for the trash pickers!! Thanks Carlo!

How does your 76 yo mother recycle (that is a huge bin)....We have very little true 'trash'.... that goes out every week....Perhaps she can leave the trash bin/recycle bin closer to the sidewalk .... that's what we are planning on doing once the snow and ice get here....

The bags are expensive .... and if she has that much true 'trash' she would have quite a few bags to take to the curb each week....and the cost is never-ending.....

Call the mayor's office. I see he has a lot of fat tubbers who could use the work out. Maybe one of them will come by and take it out. God knows we pay them enough.

Bags will let the rodents feast, and multiply! So, many cities around us are having a rodent problem, so these barrels help control the problem!

Please no!
Nothing that would slow them down even more.

They already do the "Capitol Crawl" blocking every sidestreet in Everett while they park in the middle of the street to roll barrels in from all directions,
instead of the old way of quickly tossing bags, only stopping for a few seconds to a minute at a time.

I came home at 1pm today,
and got stuck behind 3 separate trash trucks.

They crawl along and give you a look like you are doing something wrong.
No Thanks

Remember back when trash was cheap,
and there would be a driver that never left the cab,
and 3 or 4 guys hurling bags.

They would clear my street in 1/4 the time.

Now they take 4xs longer,
and have a dozen or more trucks clogging the streets.

Progress?
