I lived in an apartment complex that did that exact thing. Do you realize how many homes share some Postal stations? Those dumpsters would fill up very quickly and we could have trash overflowing and on the ground every day. I am for recycling more. Educating folks to do that would be easy. I hated dragging a sticky leaking bag to the dumpster as well.

Not attractive, and would attract unwanted animals.

I’m sure this would reduce our trash bill.
What say you?
Maybe I do not understand the suggestion but it seems like a transfer of free labor of the home owner to a paid employee which would increase cost. Who would empty the dumpsters? Also most mail stuff (e.g. ads) is recyclable, not trash.

Not a good idea. They are ugly, smelly, and would attract rodents.
I suggest one pick up a week instead of 2 to cut cost. Do we really need 2 pick ups a week.

Default dumpsters

I will pass on this idea for the same reasons as mentioned previously.

What is wrong with the way it is done now. I for one do not want to see dumpsters up at the mail station. I lived in a county where we had to drive our trash to the dumpster. I dread the thought of doing that again. Also the stench until it is emptied not to mention the trash laying all around it. I remember those hot summer days of taking the trash to the county dumpster. It was disgusting. The smell and the trash everywhere. I am paying to live her so I don’t have to do those kind of things anymore. Also when I throw larger items out for the trash they are certainly not going to fit on my golf cart. I agree with others I do not ride up to the postal station everyday. If they don’t want us to put dog feces in the trash cans up there can you imagine a group of those with dogs dumping their presents off in one area.

Trash dumpsters usually begin to smell like the trash/garbage that they collect. I certainly don't want that at my mailbox. Also, The Villages is a gorgeous place to live. The introduction of dumpsters into the residential areas is inconsistent with one of the main reasons why many people moved here.

Stinky, unsightly dumpster in the very public mail station and pool area? I don't think that is the impression that our community wishes to make on ourselves and others. It might be cost effective, but very undesirable.

Perhaps each service only once a week instead of two trash pickups. Is that way in other communities.
