The customers of Pleasanton Garbage Service (PGS) should be outraged that the Pleasanton City Council should try to impose a change in our garbage service and the way a private company is operated.
The company provides a service to its customers and I for one want the existing recycling program. Yes, maybe it could be improved, but you don't start something new without first working with what you have. Does anyone use that little green plastic container (it was intended for food scraps) that Pleasanton's mayor is so proud to bring to our city? No. I don't know anyone who ever used it. It made great pail for the kids.
The Pleasanton City Council needs to solve city problems and stop imposing itself on the private citizens and their garbage company PGS. We all just need to more mindful of what we use and reduce the amount of disposables.
