Upper Nazareth to Consider Single Trash Hauler
Yvonne Plakotaris, from East Penn Sanitation Inc., raises many of the same objections presented in Bethlehem.
“What good does a controlled single hauler system do for the citizens?" asks Plakotaris. "Why do local municipalities think they can do a better job than private enterprise? Cheaper rates the council says. I say not. The council is not fully explaining the expenses of additional staffing, legal fees, etc. that these contracts incur.”
I have not had an opportunity to discuss this with Upper Nazareth Supervisors, but will try to do so on or before Monday. .
