The Mt. Pleasant Township supervisors recently switched the township's garbage contract from Waste Management to a new hauler. Waste Management increased the rates of many customers in Unity Township. Many people I know had increases. What's worse, they all had different rates, ranging from $91 to $120 for three months.
Is this because Unity Township supervisors did not go with a single garbage hauler? Is this Waste Management's way of punishing Unity Township citizens, or does it just want to keep the same profit?
One of its competitors offers a rate of $52.50 — almost half the amount Waste Management charges me.
I, and most people, try to recycle the best we can. I don't even create a full bag of trash most weeks.
When I called to complain to Waste Management, I was offered a special rate of $79. No consistency here at all.
My guess is most of us will be changing trash haulers shortly.
