This comes up every few years. The Denver wants to start charging us twice for trash collection by adding a monthly fee, and there is a lot of pushback. Rightfully so. This affects only my house and my 4-unit buildings.

This is despite the hot economy here, the construction boom, property taxes way up, weed tax, sales tax, increased population, etc. It's never enough.

The city spends $25 million per year on trash collect and $50 million on the bums and other street people. Go figure.

The city doesn't pick up at commercial properties, of course, but we don't get a tax discount for what we pay for trash collection.

P.S. We all have alleys behind our property, so there are no trash cans on the street. At least they did that right.

One city where I have rentals charges $45.00 twice a year for trash & recycle pickup for small stores & building up to 6 units. Of course owner occupied (aka possible voters) are exempt. --96.237.xx.xx

If the bums would simply clean up after themselves... Need to replace government with on-the-job bum training, but then so many cacooned workers would feel threatened by the trained former bums who will have not only trained smarts but also bum acquired street smarts, it is time for my medication now, this is starting to make sense.

Los Angeles City charges landlords and tenant triple, you're lucky for only being charged twice!

The City makes landlords who use too many bins and cover the street on trash collection day to have a City 3 Yard Dumpster. And then the City still charges everyone who has an electric service a monthly $32 collection fee as if they still have individual trash cans. And if you have a 3 yard bin then you must also have a 3 yard recycling bin also. And if the City has to take you large bins more than 25, 50, 75 or 100 feet to the street, that's an extra charge.

I've been almost arrested several times for using my 10 ton flat bed truck removing construction debris from a work site. My own apartment complex and I was remodeling a unit (bath, kitchen and flooring). NOPE I'm not allowed to remove my own trash, I have hire the City for $1000 to do the removal. So instead of going to jail, I dumped tons of trash into the street on the curb in front of my building. If I try to store on my property, I'd be fined. If I hall it away, I might go to jail. It took the City 7 weeks to decide what to do with me. You see, besides being a licensed contractor, I'm also a State Licence Hauler....Hazardous waste also. My Federal and State Licenses mean nothing to the city because they don't share in those hauling fee's. It's all about the money, not safety. --47.156.xx.xx

Jeff,

Bummer.

In business, when business is booming is the time to increase prices.

Yup. We get the government that we deserve. And that's what they do, they set spending at levels when the economy is great. And then, when the tide pulls back... --76.120.xx.xx

FYI, recycling costs are up due to China increasing their quality requirements , possibly due to trade war. You get the govt you vote in, indeed! --50.4.xxx.x
