New Trash Collection Proposal Town Hall Tonight

Here's a friendly reminder for your trash fans...  Tuesday evening, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the Neighborhood Community Center, 1845 Park Avenue (Lions Park), the Costa Mesa Sanitary District will hold the first of two planned Town Hall meetings for all ratepayers/residents at which the proposal to change the way residential trash is collected in our community.  I also wrote about it HERE.  If you miss this meeting, a second one will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at the same venue.

This is no small deal - it will change the way each of us will be required to handle our trash in our homes, will double the number of trash trucks on our streets each week and will cost the Sanitary District more than $500,000 per year.  Of course, that means it will cost US more.

I'm eager to hear why the Directors of the Costa Mesa Sanitary District Board and our hauler, CR&R, feel this change is necessary and why it is necessary to implement NOW.  I understand that many venues separate their trash into separate containers, but I need to understand why this is happening now.  It all may make lots of sense, so I'm looking forward to hearing directly from the Directors and Staff Tuesday evening.  See you there.
