more city tax grabs, this time in the name of the environment

Permanent Linkby strider3700 on Thu Jul 16, 2009 11:27 pm

With only 2 days to go till the move I decided to read the paper and see what my shiny new city council is up to. Front page story is they are now doing roadside collection of compost materials. My first thought is of course they are. They make good money selling it back to us after it's composted. Then further reading reveals that there is a 1 time fee associated with the program of about $35, and that will get you a bin to put your stuff in. My thought then is "thats nice, I have a compost bin and a garden and will do it myself thank you" Further reading reveals this is not an opt in program. But we do at least seem to get the option of buying the special compostable liner bags for the containers. Only $5 for 25 and they should last about 2 months.

I swear everything seems to be designed to rip you off in the name of the greater good.
