    Glad county if finally showing some restraint in spending. First recycling then Hotchkiss building. Hopefully this is just the befinning. Now if they don't go crazy and spend a half million dollars on new furniture maybe I will start having a little faith in them.

    My hauler is NOT increasing the fee to add recycling and it will be the same day as my garbage pickup. So I will be getting BETTER service than I did when County was running it at ZERO extra cost.

    I do want to be sure what we put out for recycling really gets recycled, not shunted to a landfill. I haven't reviewed the books and operations of the county's recycling program, so I don't know that it was money wasted.

    It's not obvious to me that whenever government does something it's wasteful and wrong. It IS obvious to me that whenever business does something it's to make the most money for owners and/or shareholders, which often conflicts with best practices. I have ways to keep an eye on government but no way to keep an eye on what a business is doing. We'll see how it all comes out.

    I completly agree with Christy Wareham's comments.

    Government is for things that people can not do individualy for themselves....not exact but, Pres. Lincoln.

    This business first idea we have, we will find in years to come have polluted our enviroment for just one example of abuse. Cancer is simple a result of industrialization and its lack of ethics used to produce and despose of the products and byproducts.

    Really you have more faith in our elected officials? I believe once an elected official gets elected his number one priority is to be re-elected.

    Boy you interpret not having faith in elected officials to meaning I want a King. Don't interpret what I say if you have a question just ask for clarification. As far as lobyists being the trouble I have to blame the politician who sells his vote to the lobyist first. Wouldn't you agree?

    lobbyist create a atmosphere so tainted by money that they spin the media to control the masses. A clean thinking politician does not stand a chance to be elected without money for the election run. Hence, lobbyist and the latest ruling by the Supreme court that corparation domestic and foriegn can spend unlimited money on elections without having to be named make it a dirty democracy. Of course the party of big business loves this!!

    Article in FL Times was amusing. How the Mayor and couple of other usual suspects in Lyons are blaming the county for the Hotchkiss being run down. If you guys loved this building so much you would not let it of gotten into such bad shape. People just look at it this building has needed painting for years but I have not seen any of these people who are blaming the county down there painting it themselves. No their answer to everything is to get taxpayers to foot the bill. If you love the building do something yourselves don't wait for others to do it for you.

    Don't worry about what I do. I will figure it out. I don't need government to figure it out for me. Sometime us as individuals can be the answers and many of those times come up with a better and cheaper solution.

    I think you miss the point. The government makes policies for all not a few individuals. Eventually it will be cheaper to just throw away reclycling than use local collector who will eventually charge more and more. That will be most individals answer to a cheaper solution to their recyling. With lack of view of environmental problems and sound green tactics. Lets move past the selfish practices of the baby boomers.

    Also our government is made up of the individuals of our community. Maybe you should get involved in your community. Civic duty or military service should be reqired of all so people understand how and why communites and laws exist.

    Hate to burst your bubble but just because you say things doesn't make them true. Unless you are saying that not recycling should be punished most of us (including myself) do just a small percentage of what we could do as far as recycling. As far as civic duty or military service don't assume you are so much better then the rest of us. But you have a very happy new year.

    Not sure that I am better but; I have served this great country and do believe we should do our best to keep our envir. healthy and if that means laws for the greater good like easy recycling than so be it.
    I have been to china were yes their economy is growing fast but, they pollute their air and water till they choke on both.

    FYI, Just called D and L which is our garbage collector and asked how they wanted things seperated. They said just place all of it in one bin with no seperation. Where do you think that stuff will end up........HMMMMMM

    If D & L is your collector the re-cycle could end up in a pile behind the Wayne Warehouse. However, I would not blame the haulers if they take it all to the landfill. They have been treated bad by the county.

    I think the the County should at least support regional drop off centers. Perhaps at areas that people go shopping. How about places like the Wegmans Shopping Center in Newark, Lowes, and Wal-mart. At least that would be a good start.

    and u are all fools if you believe your recycling will be picked up "for no charge" If a hauler says he can do it for "free" then WHY, WHY couldnt the Authority make it work? Everything has its price, and when u quit your hauler because he raises your rates and you go to that big high in the sky hauler who 6 months ago was charging almost $30.00 for trash pick up ALONE, and can now do it cheaper than cheap, you had better get it written in blood. Or you can go to the showplace on Rt 31 who this year alone has spent well over a MILLION DOLLARS in trucks alone, and YOU believe he will do it at NO COST? Wake up people... an investigation and audit should be done to Wayne county government!

    You were kidding when you called that a showplace? Right?
    That was the Town of Palmyra Planning Board's screwup, when they had the opportunity to require screening of the trucks from thew road, but failed to do their job.
    A year from now we will be comparing the big trash haulers to Time Warner.

    I was being sarcastic about being a showplace. IT is a SHOWPLACE! He (they) show exactly where the money is... right along with all the other big shots. I believe companies need to grow, its a given. But when they hurt other businesses in the process just to have it all? Give me a break. People are in love with showplaces like that. Thats why small businesses get treated unfairly.

    I will find on tomorrow the blue boxes are out. I will keep an eye out to make sure it doesn't go in the same truck as my trash does.
