Moe Hates The New Garbage Company

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.

But we will pay more. P.Gonomics

Pacific Grove chose to go with Greenwaste for the same reasons Marina and Carmel chose it, because they need to meet the new state standards that are upping the waste reduction percentage from 50 to 75 percent.

“Their whole expertise was designed to ensure that we, as well as the other cities on the peninsula, can achieve the 75 percent waste reduction targets,” said Frutchey.

Frutchey said while the bid from Greenwaste was more affordable than Waste Management, the price of garbage service will still be going up by about five to six percent
