the city wants to give not for profit organizations a break with tipping fees. this should include the average homeowner. i know for a fact that I am not trying to make a profit by going to the dump and i believe the majority of homeowners are in the same boat .
why does it cost the average homeowner 10 dollars to go to the dump ? we pay our taxes for garbage pick-up and are held to a 2 bag limit, while most of us have extra stuff that we would like to get rid of , but can't, because of the 2 bag limit . the city makes us pay extra to use what we already pay for in our city taxes. the city also makes money on the waste we dump at the landfill, including scrap steel, tires and batteries to name a few.
cities aren't supposed to make money on homeowner's garbage. i can see charging companies to use the service , as they have alot more garbage to dispose of than the average homeowner.
give the homeowners a break and give us reduced rates to dump excess garbage at the city's landfill.
