Wondering How Town Expects Larger Families to Use One Garbage Can

To the Editor:

I love our town. I do not love our new garbage system. I don’t understand how Princeton expects a larger family (4+ family members) to be able to fit a week’s worth of garbage into one can. Many other municipalities have twice-a-week collection, which would make one garbage can feasible for a family of my size. Once-a-week collection results in overfilled cans which spill into the street.

It’s also quite ridiculous to expect us to pay an annual leasing fee of $150-$300 per additional can. If this were a one-time purchase fee, it’s understandable, but annually? Come on.
