I agree with Gil Hyder on the garbage discounts for seniors, but there is also the people who are disabled and on a very limited income.
Why not set up a program for them also? Of course they must meet certain financial qualifications to be on the program. I am disabled and on a very strict budget, and have even asked my neighbor if we could share a garbage can, but the city will not allow this.
I only have one bag of garbage in my can per week, so why not give us, the disabled, a lower rate also?
It all comes down to money and the city does not want to help those who need the help. I really hope that the city will consider these two rate deductions.
If I could afford to give my discount up, I would!
