Every week recycle pickup is a waste of time and money. I am not in favor of paying anything extra to pay for someone elses' inability or unwillingness to break down their recycling and crush bottles and cans. The only time in 23 years that I have had to hold anything back from the bin (and I have only 1) is if there was many large styrafoam packing pieces. Packaging air pillows can be easily popped and they take up almost no space. Just because some IL locations pick up every week does not mean we have to. I moved up hear to get away from that kind of stuff. I vote absolutely not.

I do not support this initiative. About 90% of my waste is recyclable and I do not exceed the capacity. Further I get charged the same amount as everyone else and only put out trash and recycles about once every 4-5 weeks. I shouldn’t be charged even more.
The recycling/composting facility is a wonderful place and people that reach their recycling capacity can bring it to the recycling facility.
Thank you!

No, I do not want recycling collected every week. The large recycling container collected every two weeks is more than enough for my household.

I'm in favor of weekly recycling (and garbage pickup) for an additional $2.50 per month. We recycle everything - we have 2 recycle cans and always fill both every week. Many times having additional boxes/recycling outside of the bins because we have too much. Our garbage can isn't usually full, but I like the weekly garbage pickup because it does smell.

We do not feel the need for weekly recycling collection, nor any monetary increase. We have always been able to put everything in the recycling bin by taking the time to break down, crush whatever is going in there. We actually have a lot of room in the garbage bin each week. If people do not have enough room for all their recyclables, then they could purchase another bin. The expense should be theirs only.

I don’t agree with the idea that a family is exceeding their recycling bin capacity and the solution is to go to weekly service and charge everyone more money. Our family of six people recycle everything possible and every two weeks fill the 95 gallon recyclable cart. None of our recyclables end up in the garbage. The underlying issue here is the amount of garbage. Let’s develop a system provides an incentive to recycle, such as charging homeowners for the amount of garbage they generate. Instead of the current collection options of Unlimited for $17.50 and Automated for 16.50, what about $10 for a 32 gal cart, $15 for a 65 gal, and $20 for 95 gal?

I do not support a rate increase for additional recycling collection and I do not need additional recycling collection. We are a family of four with the smaller recycling bin. I recycle religiously. I crush the milk/detergent jugs, break down boxes, etc.. Generally the bin is 90% full, sometimes I need to pack the cardboard which may take a minute or two. From my observation of others and their overflowing recycling bins, it appears as though many may not put effort into utilizing the bin space. Should I be burdened their laziness?? Lets look at the numbers: Estimate of $2.50/month * 12 months = $30/yr - Some say "No big deal". Lets look at the long term: $30/yr * 10 yrs = $300, 20 yrs = $600 -->> Yikes!!

I don't need every week pick up so why should I pay for the people who do?

This is a terrible idea. Anyone who doesn't have enough space in a big dumpster, can get a second one at their own expense. Why should the rest of us subsidize them?

No, I don't want to pay more. I'll get a 2nd bin instead.
