Letter to the editor: Yes on single hauler

Posted
 
I’m looking forward to the City Council’s decision on the single-hauler waste effort and positive changes in Arvada around recycling. I trust that our elected members of government will make a choice representative of the citizens, no need for a ballot decision.
I’m looking forward to less traffic, less noise, and less pollution, as well. I live on a quiet dead-end street of 12 homes in central Arvada. We do not have sidewalks and our children can ride bikes and run throughout our neighborhood. Yet, every week, there are up to nine large trash trucks on my street, driving down and then turning around and driving back through. 
I’m looking forward to more choices around my waste diversion options. Currently, I recycle and compost nearly all of my waste stream, not needing trash pick-up every week. Yet, because others can put out five trash cans every week, my rates subsidize those high-volume homes. With this new system, I will have more choices not less about my waste diversion. I will get to choose the smallest trash can and pay only $11.50 a month for trash and recycling, saving my family nearly $20 every month. This system will save thousands of Arvadans well-earned money during these uncertain times, and that’s a win for everyone. Stronger neighbors means stronger communities. Efficiency saves all of us money, either in wallets or taxes.
I’m looking forward to a more robust, efficient, less expensive waste hauling format. It’s time for One Street, One Truck, Arvada!
Tara Kent,
Arvada
