just to be clear, the person posting as “JHolland” and i are two different people. this is not an opinion on the other “Jholland”‘s posts. just letting you know.
We have had it up to our ears with this ridiculous manipulation of Berkeley citizens by the “eco” folks! We have gone along with the spills all around our curbs, the rude and traffic blocking arrogance of the truck drivers, the “I’m doing you such a huge favor” attitude and NOW our garbage has been tripled in size due to the incredible restrictions on recycling and “proper” preparation. Our costly “BLUE” designer container will take at least one month to fill with the limited things from the list. HOW DOES SANTA MONICA DO IT????? They are friendly, clean, quiet and take EVERYTHING IN ONE CONTAINER!!! We continue to feel ripped off by regulations and the ecology titans! Garbage piles & landfill mass increase, bills go up and everybody is furious. We are philosophically 100% behind recycling but feel squeezed out of the process by bureaucratic decisions, greedy management and inefficient regulations. We are considering not participating at all and will return our blue container!
