Letter: Residents should be given a choice on trash collection



I could not agree more with Nancy Thomas’ (Aug. 16) and Sonya Wendel’s (July 26) comments regarding Ray’s vs. Republic trash collection.

We have lived in Carmel 30 years and have had Ray’s all 30 years. I cannot recall a single time they missed a scheduled pickup, and they have always taken everything we set out. I also agree the city council surely has more important things to do than to dictate what trash collector we must use.

Since this is a free country and we are paying for trash collection, we should definitely have our choice what trash collector we use.
