Garbage vs. Recycling

Dear Editor:

After reading twice in the paper now about Randy Epley and his feelings about our recycling program, I would like to add what I hope is a solution for the rest of us, or at least the possible majority.

The only thing that would make the program better is to have rotating pick up, one week garbage and the next recycling. I have a family of three and our garbage is about 1/4 of our throw away each month. Two days after the recycling is picked up my recycle can is full. To keep from throwing recyclables into a landfill, my husband will load our pickup from 2 to 3 times per month & make a trip to the recycle center on Morgantown Road. Not everyone is able to make that trip so unfortunately most just throw recyclables into their trash.

Therefore I hope our good citizens will join me at the next fiscal court meeting (should be Feb. 9 at 9 a.m. in the old court house) and voice your opinion because we need more recycle pick up, not less.

Oh, and if you can’t make the meeting please call Logan Chick & or your local magistrate to let them know your feelings as we are a voice of many, not one.
