Nancy Tague's letter in Thursday's edition of The News-Review expressed my sentiments regarding the landfill fees, and I thank her for doing the math.

I also want the Solid Waste Advisory Committee to know that not everyone has a truck. Those of us who take our garbage to the dump in our cars will pay disproportionately, as we cannot fit any cans and can only transport bags. I also want to add that I recycle out-of-town, and to get 3 bags for the transfer station would require long periods of time for trash to accumulate.

I strongly feel that waivers should be granted to those that pick up for others, but to grant waivers to those that could make huge contributions to the landfills because they might be helpful to the county is rolling the dice. I am a strong advocate for keeping the Glide Transfer Station open and keeping the per-can fee, even if that means $4 instead of $3.
