LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | Recycle charge: We’ll cancel

To the editor:

Our family supports optional curbside recycling for those members of our community who opt to pay for it. We do not, however, support an incremental fee for services which we neither want nor would use.

Each week in the course of running our other errands, we take our materials destined to be recycled to Jill and Dave Campbell’s Island Recycling. The volume of materials we deliver to Island Recycling each week far exceeds the amount of waste that Island Disposal picks up from us curbside. Should curbside recycling charges automatically be added to our Island Disposal bill we would likely cancel their service altogether.

Charging Island Disposal customers for a service they do not want is ridiculous. Comcast is not allowed to automatically charge us for HBO … is that coming next?
