Fifty years of good garbage collection in Portage. You put it there and they would take it away at a reasonable price. Then comes some joker and says it is not good enough, so we will change it.

So now we have big up-to-date expensive containers and trucks and rules.

Problems come along with it. Certain things that were taken before are an extra cost item. Someone please tell me why that is better and for whom.
