Should Columbia embrace roll carts for trash pickup?

Roll carts come in various sizes for small families and/or handicapped. Carts are cheaper to use and are not bothered by cats, dogs, possums, skunks, raccoons. Carts contain waste in a more eye appealing and sanitary way. Carts don't allow waste to be scattered on the ground like bags.

This is the only place I've lived that doesn't use bins. The animals get into it half the time and where are you supposed to store it while waiting for trash day? After the initial expense of new trucks, labor costs will be greatly reduced due to 1 driver. Let's get out of the stone age Columbia!

On trash day, the streets in otherwise pretty neighborhoods are strewn with garbage, which is a serious hygiene issue. It's hard to believe someone thought not having roll carts was reasonable.

The current system is the most ridiculous thing I've encountered in any place we have lived. Please, for the love of God, change to the bins like the rest of the country.

I enjoy putting my trash bags in other bags and then again in another bag (assuming I can find a place that has them) after animals tear through the bags that I put out the night before but I can't help but think there has to be a better way.

No need for people to pick up bags. Just one person per route, the driver. Check out Moberly. Even if the city of Columbia does not run it, it will be better for the citizens.

The city shouldn’t be in charge of any utilities. Especially waste removal.

Because the roll carts won't work everywhere, there is a very large percentage of Columbia that has hills trees culdesacs that would be difficult if not impossible for a lift truck to operate, the system now is fast and efficient.

Then why not have the consumer make the choice of what they want? Why can't the people that pickup the trash be trained to handle both bags and carts? Would that require too much training and management? It is obvious that about 75% of the people commenting feel carts are better. Stone Age Columbia!

How many times do we have to vote on this? Fine for students & young people, but older, disabled, can't deal with them. We voted this down once. Why are we doing it again???

Until you get it right. Read the arguments for roll carts. Many very good reasons. Very few valid reasons for plastic bags.

Yes&no 1) he took a life so yes he should be held accountable. 2) he had heart issues he should remain life in prison cause he would end life eventually. People who have medical conditions that's on death row should be life in prison instead of leathal injection.

The death penalty makes you what you hate - a murderer. The death penalty makes you a hypocrite. The death penalty is nothing more than collectivized sadism. Abolish the death penalty!

Heat and humidity will "alter my behavior" like it always does. It's Missouri, if you check the records you'll find that a "heat wave" is nothing new here. Good grief we act like extremes in weather are a big surprise and oh god what shall we do.

Oh my God! We're all doomed! I don't know what I'm going to do. I need the government to help me. Save me President Biden. I am helpless without the government. Send me a fan at least. Do something government! [This has been an example of liberal thinking so you can mock it when encountered.] FJB

It's not a heat wave, it's climate change. We need to tax it, that'll fix it.

It will take more than super high taxes on the producers. We all need to eat bugs, give up our privately owned cars, 6uild 6ack 6etter with small houses with solar panels. We will own nothing and act like we are happy (or suffer the consequences). That is liberal utopia.

Call it "global warming." Liberals don't like that term anymore.
