More Proposing Universal Trash Service

Looks like the City of Arcata might be dropping the fee they charge on top of water and sewer service that helps fund waste diversion because of the threat of a lawsuit by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayer Association. Now they're scrambling to find alternative funding for waste diversion. Interesting that one proposal is establishing Universal Waste Service, or whatever they call it. Basically that means everyone gets garbage pickup service whether they want it, need it, or not.

Since this proposal seems to be circulating amongst the "progressives" in Eureka, as well, I can't help but wonder if there is some ulterior motive for wanting mandatory trash pick up? Might it be that they feel if everyone is required to subscribe to something it makes it an easier and more profitable source to add fees to?
