Do you know how much more expensive the private haulers are? I live in the city but on a private street. When my neighborhood looked into getting city trash (and still keeping our street private) it was a huge savings. Curbside recycling didn't cost us any extra, and there was yard waste and the city takes away our furniture, appliances and Christmas trees for no extra cost. Plus the rate was lower than what we were getting with "that other place." Now we will be getting larger ENCLOSED bins so stuff doesn't blow all over the place, the city will save money and less will go to the landfill. And I don't know how a hand clicker can be accurate. I'm willing to bet that everytime someone does a count you will get a different number. Plus I don't want to pay for a stolen recycling bin. I am all for this.
