Letter to the editor: Freedom isn't rubbish

We don't live in a covenant controlled community on purpose! Because we believe in freedom of choice! Now that freedom is threatened by a few people!
They complain of trucks in the neighborhood. Many kinds of trucks use the street, including city trucks, and heavy equipment, UPS, FedEx, a mail truck, ambulance and fire trucks, cement trucks, plumbers, tree trimmers, a bus for medical needs, street cleaners and the occasional moving van. Our neighbors have trucks, large campers and boats. Are these the next target?
As far as waste-collection trucks — there are only two days , about 15 minutes each day, that their trucks are on our street. That's much less than package delivery!
What do you think the city will use? They will "hire" one of these companies! We pay $17 a month for waste collection, including up to 10 bags of yard waste.
We have lived in Arvada for 50 years! During those years we changed our waste-collection company for private reasons because we could! We had the freedom to choose! That is free enterprise! It allows both the provider and the customer freedom to choose what works best for them! The competition in free enterprise has the added benefit of good service at a good price.
Consider what happens in New York when the only waste collection company goes on strike and trash piles up for weeks!
I hope the people realize this is not just about trash — but about freedom to choose based on our needs and financial ability.
Karen Hug,
Arvada
