Re: Trashed in delco
The cost of getting rid of some household things is outrageous.
If you do not have a vehicle to haul it to a scrap yard to make money off it, then you have to put it out for the township to take which could cost a lot of money [up to $50} I am told.
Or put it out front and wait for the scavengers, I mean scrapers, to come and get it.
Some towns will fine you for leaving something out at the curb to many days too.
Tires alone will cost you $5 or 10 to have hauled away.
In Aston we pay a fee already for trash pickup yearly, we recycle everything we can, glass, plastic, paper, oil and liquids can be taken to the township bldg.
I can see why people would find other means of getting rid of things, when you already live on a limited income, just had to buy a new fridge or stove or whatever, the cost of having to pay for removal of the broke one is too much.
And I think, not sure, but I think in Chester you have to call the township and set up an appointment for them to come out to get it and pay for it.
If you can't say anything nice, say nothing at all.
I can only please one person a day, today is not your day...
tomorrow is not looking good for you either.
Opinions are like A**holes, everyone's got one!!!!!
