Greenwaste’s mandatory recyclables sorting rules are not making the trash creators happy. Was he old way any better?
And what a typo – Ron Shank!
Ron Shank with St. Vincent De Paul Thrift Store said a centralized location to deal with the cardboard isn’t what the businesses are paying for.
Shank said he’s paying more money under GreenWaste for less service.
“I don’t mind paying a few more dollars, I realize costs are going up. I expected that,” he said. “I did not expect to have poor service and in my opinion, it’s poor service.”
Moe Ammar, president of the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce, said a lot of work needs to be done for the sides to reach an agreement. He criticized GreenWaste’s claims of being environmentally friendly, saying some businesses will end up just driving to the dump or putting recyclables in the trash.
“The only thing that’s green about that company is money,” Ammar said.
