Grass clippings MAY be chemically treated and get in ground water...Don't you think it would get there anyway through absorbing, rain, run off? Should ALL customers have to pay a higher rate so a few can get their clippings hauled off? So tired of Roger The Self Appointed Property Deputy.

Scandelous chances are Rumpke really isn't recycling. Sure more than likely the recycling truck rolls around but some weeks I've seen them throw the recycling right in with the trash.

TAKE OUT THE RECYCLING: Something I'd like to see in the new contract that should cost nothing to us... I rent an apartment that provides garbage service with a Rumpke Dumpster. As an individual I cannot contract recycling-only service with Rumpke. I've called and emailed them several times over the years to ask. All I want is a simple bin to be picked up with everyone else's on the curb, but that is apparently not allowed. I'd even pay a small fee to not have to package and car haul all my recycling to Gilman. Anything we can do about that, Council? If you think about all of the apartment complexes in town that provide dumpsters and cannot recycle with Rumpke that's a shame and a waste. Most trash haulers increase their price if they can't nab your recycling and make some money from it. You'd think they'd want this recycling & related money.

Kalters accusations very seldom "has teeth". Another of his projects that he will start but not finish. I am satisfied with the current trash pick up and costs. So Kalter, who is this mystery multi-millionaire. Also, look to your own properties before accusing another person of the same thing.

Keep the cost of trash pick up the same but add in at least every 2 months have a day you can put as much as you want or anything you want except paints , tires etc. That seems fair with the rest of the county around Marietta who can put out as much as they want all the time but for twice the cost. or lower price on extra tags there way to much. Just don't take there bids they want our trash pickup. Bargain for a good contract .

Name the property address of the "multi-millionaire" and allow him/her to respond...otherwise Kalter's accusation has "no teeth".
