After reading Northend Serious Dumpers burying Southend Litterbugs
by Jerry Cegelske I wonder what it would take to have a borough
wide garbage system like we have here in Fairbanks.
Dumpsters are set up in convenient locations around the borough
and people haul their own garbage to them at no cost. There is
an area set aside for good junk that people think other people
may be able to use and another area is set aside for large metal
items. This system works really well and I believe - although
I'm not sure - the funding comes from property taxes.
After moving here and seeing how swift this system works I wondered
why it isn't used in Ketchikan although sometimes it seems like
making a change - even to a better system - practically takes
an act of Congress.
Jerry, didn't you used to live in Fairbanks? If so, what did
you think of this system and do you think it would work in Ketchikan?
