Cohen outlines reasons for new trash pickup mandate

July 24th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The Cumberland Mayor and City Council is expected to take action at it’s August 4th meeting requiring that all trash for curbside pickup, including items in garbage cans, must be in plastic bags. The City Council voted unanimously during a virtual Tuesday meeting to approve the first reading of an ordinance requiring the bagging of all refuse. Mike Cohen, city attorney, said the change comes at the request of Burgmeier’s Hauling, which provides trash collection for the city. The request made in large part due to the coronavirus threat. Cohen provided some specifics…

    Makes sense. Does this include recycling pick up or can it still be unbagged?

      Paper in paper bags.
      Glass in glass bags.

    The City worries about Covid 19 in garbage but they are still contemplating opening classrooms.
    That’s like Trump canceling his convention over concern for Covid 19 infections but demands that schools be reopened.

      > Spoken like a true brainless liberal sheep. The fact is american children are way behind as far as education goes already, so you want to keep them at home. Parents need to work to support their families. Maybe you can babysit too since you seem to know everything. You talk a lot of crap but offer no solutions, just like your hero Joe Biden.

    So shouldn’t the safety of children come first not their status and why does even the slightest comment against the faux conservatives spark such vitriole and name calling

      Would it please Dan if Trump walked across the street and held up another upside down Bible?

    I laugh my a** off that having to tell people to have the common decency to put your trash a plastic bag is an issue to be debated. Virus aside, there is NO excuse for subjecting the folks who pick up the trash to soiled diapers, kitchen scraps and the like loosely sitting in trash cans. We also should stop pretending we don’t know who and where most of target audience is for this request from Burgmeier. The same bunch who use our schools as baby sitters, call 911 for nonsense, and think all the drug addicts and professional bums in town are just one more handout away from turning things around.

    I feel really good about myself as the main goal of my life is to piss Dan off and I did it!
    All you have to do is post a silly comment and you’re well on your way.
    Try it, it’s easy.

      > Mac it would take a lot more than your brain dead mindless comments to piss me off. I enjoy trashing liberal fools such as yourself and DPM. It is one of my pleasures. BTW TRUMP 2020 baby!!!
