Our trash rates increased because of recycling. Will our trash rates increase to end recycling?

That will depend on the charges from the landfills to take all our stuff.

We are sending a second fleet of trucks around The Villsges every week. How environmentally friendly and cost effective is that? If it’s going to the landfill as I have heard, it is absurd.

Quite frankly I don't like the can idea either. Just put it out there because an earlier poster asked about the cans. Don't have the room to store them in the garage and would look crappy sitting in the yard as they are quite large.

You don't have room to store one big garbage can in the garage. So where do you store all the different trash bags filled with trash? Kitchen, bathroom, other bathroom, the bag you use to clean the litterbox, lint from the dryer, etc. etc. etc.

Before The Villages I lived in a large 55+ community in Leesburg for 10 years. That comm had (and still uses) a waste company that ONLY took TRASH & RECYCLING using HUGE plastic bins with hinged tops - they were about 30" square and 4' high - green for trash, blue for recycl. Needed to wheel them out the night before. The trucks were manned by ONLY the driver and the truck had a pneumatic pivoting arm on the side of the truck that would grasp the bin and noisily lift/rotate it into the truck. Each cycle would take about 30 seconds - much longer than our guys flipping bags in the truck... another truck came for recycl bins. AND of course, after the trash is taken the empty bins are left on the curb, sometimes tipping, and smelling -sometimes all day if the people were out. AND many folks kept them outside, not in the garage during the week.

Although OUR system here in TV is not perfect, it's better than that...

All those individual trash cans you mentioned get emptied twice a week into a large trash bag which is contained in a kitchen size garbage can in the garage. No need for storing this trash in the house unless you consider each individual trash receptacle as being storage. Those trash receptacles are being used on a daily basis. They do not need emptying until trash day when they go out to the end of the driveway.

Most garages here in TV are a standard size and are not large enough to fit large trash bins in these garages (unless you only have one vehicle in the garage). I do not want to look at these garbage cans on the sides of homes nor in back yards. Many back yards face main streets here in TV. Our community would look "trashy" and I imagine that is not the look most home owners in our lovely neighborhoods would want.

The never ending garbage topic. Back on topic if there's no demand for recycled item they get thrown in the regular trash.
