Eureka Garbage Problems

Interesting article in the Eureka Reporter today on trash problems in Eureka. Funny how the photo at the top of the story shows a bunch of shopping carts dumped into the Palco Marsh. While certainly a problem, I don't know that the dumping of shopping carts would be affected by any of the strategies mentioned in the article to reduce trash.

I wonder about this proposal to have trash collection mandated for Eureka residents, though. Some people don't need trash pick up and some people, even if you supplied trash cans for free, aren't going to use them. Some people are just slobs. I think I'd oppose such a plan and that's from a guy who just signed up for garbage service this year and thinks it's a bargain.
