Mandates on garbage collection? Are you serious? (Chuck Parrish, March Tukwila Reporter, “Mandatory garbage collection is best for all.”) The cost of garbage collection will certainly go up when Tukwila citizens have no choice and require every resident to pay for a service whether they use it or not. There are probably as many reasons for not using the service as there are non-customers.
Making a choice into a requirement just sounds to me like just too much “government “ control (can you say Obamacare?) and to place this service into the hands of private enterprises, sounds like your “opinion” was bought and paid for.
Beautiful Tukwila? Have the current customers get their containers off the street after collections. Mandate that. The City Council should treat this smelly idea for what it is – TRASH.
