Town should keep local trash service

I am writing to support sourcing our recycling program to a longstanding entity, Island Rubbish. I have lived here since 1981 and experienced the growth of our trash and recycling to a more mature, environmentally sound program. Island Rubbish has been a cornerstone to the town’s efforts.

Further, Island rubbish employees are town people. They are trusted in our neighborhoods, serve as an added set of eyes, and serve the community as volunteer firefighters and other functions.

Let’s keep our island flavor by ensuring that island jobs remain with island people.
