| This is a crazy world and the story I'm about to tell you is a true story and also it's CRAZYYYYYY!!!
So the story is about a woman who is complaining about trash.
"Should You Pay for your garbage"
If you have more trash than can fit in a single can,should you pay extra to get rid of it? You would if you lived in Austin,Texas one of thousands of communities nationwide that has switched to a "Pay As You Throw"(PAYT)system. Traditionally, households paid a set yearly fee for trash disposal, or the costs were covered by property taxes. In Austin, pick-up costs $11.75 a month for a 30 -gallon can or $14.50 for 60 gallons; anything that won't fit cost extra. Resident Jacci Howard Bear says she now thinks twice before throwing things away, especially if they could be recyled. "Extra garbage stickers cost $2 each ,"she says "Trust me, it adds up fast." But 25% of Americans now pay for trash collection based on how much they use it,the waymost of us pay for water and electricity. Opponents argue that it penalizes those on fixed incomes and that it can lead to illegal garbage dumping. They also point out that store packaging accounts for a lot consumers waste and say it's unfair to make households foot the bill bill to dispose of it. Advocates of PAYT cite studies that show it encourage recycling and reduces the waste in landfills by up to 17%. PAYT systems vary widely.with some towns using special bags, cans, or stickers and charging anywhere from less then a dollor to more than $2 per bag.
