Cutting trash center staff doesn't serve residents

There's got to be a lot more to the story behind the proposed changes to the Beaufort County's trash and recycling center staff reductions. Solid Waste manager Jim Minor is encouraging residents to make weekday stops before or after work to reduce weekend loads at the centers in Bluffton and Hilton Head Island -- but the county closes them altogether on Wednesdays and doesn't open them until 9 a.m. (vs. 7 a.m. now) on the other days. That will make it easier, huh?
