The Village of Cobleskill’s new contract with Vet’s Waste Hauling and the new restrictions that go along with it belong in one place: the trash. Unfortunately, Vet’s Disposal would probably go through the bag and decide for some reason to leave it behind.
The solution: write a new law covering residential, apartment and commercial waste and remove the restriction requiring clear bags and no bulk items. Unless the Village is going to drastically reduce taxes, there’s no justification for reducing services in this manner. Collecting the trash is a basic municipal function, this shouldn’t even be an issue!
