To the Editor:
The city of Killeen has proposed a “single stream” recycling plan that they hope to have in place shortly.
They also plan to charge $2.50 a month for every household, even if we, like my household, do our own recycling.
My family recycles newspapers, cardboard, bulk mail, aluminum, glass, steel, copper and almost everything we can.
We sell these items to two or three local outlets, and as a result, earn almost $40 a month. Why, when my family will not be recycling these items, will we be required to pay the extra cost?
We do use the trash collection for things we can’t readily recycle, so would continue to pay what we normally do.
There are others, like myself and my family, who think the proposed increase is wrong if it is not used.
Why pay for a service that is, for your family, not needed?
