Letter to the editor: Getting together on trash

Posted

My husband and I have lived on Simms Street for 42 years. We have seen it deteriorate for the past 10 for sure. We have trash trucks on our street five days a week, sometimes more than one hauler per day. We don’t have the benefit of an HOA so it is constantly in a state of trash cans out or tipped over due to wildlife.

I have talked to many neighbors and we would love to have one truck one day a week. Also, to have recycling as an option would be great. I believe the proposal is also to have the trash company have a large item pick up a few times a year like they do in Denver.

I don’t want anyone to go out of business, but the city could be divided into sections and have just one company work that section. If you have an HOA trash that you are happy with, keep it. But if the city could negotiate a better deal, I don’t see why they might want to change.

Can we all work together for a better Arvada? I know our street need help for sure.

Kathy and Mike Jackson,
Arvada
