In response to ("City to propose increases in monthly trash, recycling fees," The Daily News, July 23): It's time for the city of Galveston to get out of the trash-collecting business.
They want to raise our rates to $25 dollars and recycle fee to $3.05. Recycling isn't even picked up; you must take it yourself.
League City has a private contractor, AmeriWaste, picking up trash and recycling. Their monthly charge is $18.45.
It's time for a change, and it would save the city lots of money.
