Private sector was once meaningful | Letters

Your editorial on recycling is beyond reproach. It is so well thought out that words cannot describe it.

If I understand your stance correctly it goes something like this — If a company attached at the hip to the government starts a new additional program to the one we currently pay for and has start-up cost we — the consumer — must pay at all cost.

Now you have reached deep into the dark realm of deep thinking and suggest that if someone is dissatisfied with the “new” no glass recycling program then just stop your garbage from being collected and the problem is solved.

How does the collection of garbage which is what is done now suddenly become attached to recycling and a take it or leave it position?

If Island Disposal wants to start a “new” no-glass recycling and take their chances like the — watch out here it comes — ‘private sector’ then go for it. You do remember the old days when the words ‘private sector’ was a meaningful word and not the current after thought?
