The selection and dismissal of our current collectors of trash and recyclables seems to have been too hasty and not thought out. Trash service is a basic town function. It should not have been so difficult to grasp the different requirements for a resort community vs. a permanent population. It raises doubts about other council decisions.
My service with Republic has been quite satisfactory and, as others have pointed out, much less expensive than previous providers. The prospects of paying three times more for a service heretofore provided by Republic is tough.
What is to become of the overall, important recycling service that should be a town-wide effort?
Never miss a local story.
