No glass, no class

I signed on with a waste removal company because it accepted glass bottles and jars. Now, along with a $287.19 bill for my 2018 pick-ups, was a memo that, as of March, glass will no longer be accepted. So I phoned asking if the reduction in service had a reduction in my cost. I was told the sorting of glass was too much work and that sorting it would be easier if I did it. There would be no reduction in fees, only a reduction in service. Not fair to us pensioners who have to watch every penny.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
