A group of Springville residents plans to attend Monday's Village Board meeting to protest the new garbage pickup plan that requires householders to spend $2.25 for a 33-gallon bag.
"Everywhere I go people are protesting," said Gladys Schmelz of 100 Church St.
"My husband, Norman, a retired model maker, and I live on a fixed income. It would take us too long to fill a 33-gallon bag, and by the time we did, it would attract bugs and be too heavy to lift. We prefer the old system of buying small bags for $1 or large ones for $1.50. And we think that garbage collection should be part of our taxes so that everyone shares the cost."
