How About a Garbage Rebate?

  • Chicago should impose a garbage collection fee -- similar to the freight suburbanites have paid for years -- to close a $420 million budget gap without massive layoffs and service cuts, an influential union leader said Monday.
  • A fee of $10 a month from the 600,000 Chicago households that get city garbage pickup would generate $72 million a year. A $15 fee would produce $108 million.
  • Aldermen may call it a back-door property tax increase and claim Chicagoans expect refuse collection costs to be covered by their tax bill.

    But the case can also be made that Chicago can no longer afford to provide a free service that costs money almost everywhere else.

We'd like a fee rebate if we don't fill our garbage cans every pick up day then. We compost all of our yard waste, saving the City money. We recycle metal, plastic, paper, cardboard and just about everything else even remotely reusable. If we can sneak a few bags into the neighbor's cans, we can go eight or ten weeks a year without a single pick up.

Or maybe Daley could stop giving away money, crooked contracts, no-show jobs, aldercreature raises, and any of a hundred more schemes and programs that serve no purpose? Or would that make sense?

FOP? Add this to the negotiations where being required to live in the City costs us way too much to keep up with the "raises" that end up being reductions.

How is this service free, when our taxes pay for it?


You'd think that that question would have been posed in the news article.

Anybody else notice a car or pick-up coming into the city loaded with garbage bags to be dumped into city garbage cans to avoid the suburban garbage collection fee's?

I notice it every so often on the Stevenson.

How long until the City just deducts our Taxes right out of our paychecks? How long till a City Income Tax is enacted by the Machine?

Actually, I predict that this will just be the tip of the iceberg.

1. Expect to see the monthly costs rise every two to three years.

2. Maybe he'll require a city sticker for our garbage cans.

3. Expect replacement carts to also require an extra payment. (This will discourage people from bothering his alderman/ward committeeman...looking for a favor.)

4. Once a payment is missed, then expect Daley's contracted "revenuers" to issue citations for missed payments.

5. Both the payments and the administrative citations will double if they are not paid within two weeks.

And finally, if you get two tickets...Your garbage cart will be booted.

If we need to get rid of the garbage...start on the 5th floor of City Hall.

f.o.p. rep in roll call says everything is on the table for contract.... including no retro check? can you do pose another question like the j-fed no confidence poll? maybe something along the line of,"How can Donahue's head be so big but contain so little?" or "pay me right fuckin now!" wait...that would be a demand not a question.

Yeah, right. And good luck collecting from the residents of the ghettos who can't even place the minority (no pun intended) of their garbage into the City-provided cans. A quick jaunt through any Westside or Southside ghetto alley resembles the remnants of Hurricane Katrina. More shit strewed everywhere BUT the cans/dumpsters. Sidenote: I always wondered what it'd be like to just throw a shitty diaper out of a third floor window into a neighbor's weed-choked yard...but I digress. If this latest hair-brained scheme were ever to come to fruition, the ghetto rats should be charged five-fold for the service. But then like-thinkers would be labeled "racist", and those who contribute the most to the problem would end up getting garbage pick-up vouchers courtesy of you and I, the taxpayers. And round and round it goes, folks. Another fleecing in progress.

Your taxes, property taxes may go up slighty, but the quality of life will improve so much you will be glad to settle for less money. No more private schools, No more 40oz drinkers on the corners. Bye Bye phoney revs, let Nero fiddle( Daley) while Rome Taxes you to death( garbage tax) The membership just wont have to give a fuck cause your gone. This is a great time to go for it. The economics are in our favor. Only the clout babies will stay to kiss the alder creatures ass and ring door bells on election days. FOP poll the members think about it.

I'm confused. It is not a free service. Our taxes pay for streets and san workers. Up at the summer place we pay monthly for pickup however outside companies are contracted out after legit bid process. If we do not like them, we can find another waste hauler.

What is going to happen in some neighborhoods when they do not pay, they will stop picking up? It will look worse then it already does.

Since when is anything city service been free to a property tax payer?

How about the politicians take a 30% wage decrease that includes cuts in their office and camera funds?

How about eliminating set aside programs that over charge the city for goods and services?

How about making sure the city doesn't double pay vendor bills?

How about taking all those stupid police cameras that don't even displaced crime anymore and sell them to another city?

Any citizen could look at the city's budget and find ways to cut line items out.

How about not giving away $930,000.00 three year contacts to police superintendents. J-fed already lost one his his jobs at 911 because he's incompetent. Does the city get any money back?

Daley also wants to regulate private garbage pick ups in the city. He will give each of the 13 private trash companys a sector of the city where they will be the only licensed provider. Then the city will charge the provider (ergo, the resident) a fee that goes to the city. What a bunch of B.S.! Anything to make a quick buck off the little guy.

Don't we pay for garbage pick up via our property taxes? I can see it now....The garbage trucks equipped with a computer listing, by alley address, who paid and who didn't pay. Your garbage gets picked up (if you paid your garbage disposal bill) and your neighbors doesn't. Then you catch your neighbors using your can and you have no room for your garbage. (This could cause domestic unrest among neighbors!) Then the rat population increases in the alleys. Then they'll start charging for rat disposal. (Hopefully they would start with the fat rat on the 5th floor at city hall!) My god, these people get paid x amount of $$$$ to come up with such stupid ideas. If we started taxing the stupidity in city,county, AND state government we would have windfall profits that far exceed those of the oil companies! What is wrong with these people? (Loaded question!)

When you refer to the "inner city" where exactly do you mean? As far as I can see, the inner city is very wealthy and full of tax paying citizens. There are a few buildings at Cabrini but other than that it's all yuppie now and all big time tax payers!! By inner city, I am thinking of a pretty large area too....North Ave to Roosevelt Road and Halsted to the Lake.....not too many people there who are poor. You can extend that out to Western up to Fullerton and down to 18th St and you will still have the same results so where exactly is this "inner city" that is supposedly full of ghetto poor non-tax payers that you so often refer to in your postings???

Unlike these lazy "patronage" city schlubs, who spill 1/2 the contents of the can on the ground and let it blow away. Then if you say something to them about it, you get an unintelligable mumble in "ebonics!"

Don't we pay for garbage pick up via our property taxes? I can see it now....The garbage trucks equipped with a computer listing, by alley address, who paid and who didn't pay. Your garbage gets picked up (if you paid your garbage disposal bill) and your neighbors doesn't. Then you catch your neighbors using your can and you have no room for your garbage. (This could cause domestic unrest among neighbors!) Then the rat population increases in the alleys. Then they'll start charging for rat disposal. (Hopefully they would start with the fat rat on the 5th floor at city hall!) My god, these people get paid x amount of $$$$ to come up with such stupid ideas. If we started taxing the stupidity in city,county, AND state government we would have windfall profits that far exceed those of the oil companies! What is wrong with these people? (Loaded question!)

Great idea neighbor don't pay then garbage everywhere rat city, just like the westside is now! New York tried garbage bullshit years ago, went to total private pick up the bid was cheap, 2 years later the price skyrocketed and the city sold all there old trucks. typical daley fashion milk the people who actually pay their taxes! How about charging for all the illegals in schools, as a matter of fact mayor moron how about sending all illegals back would save billions quickly shitcago would have less crime and be flush with cash. daley you could then give police 10% a year raise, 25 and 80% then watch us WORK jagoff!

And the Mexican pickup truck drivers probably take 1/2 of your garbage away for free (all your empty beer cans).

But that's ok, you are where the money will come from to pick up from the ghetto. I think they call it Socialism. You pay the same but use less, so the government gives it to the next guy.

We already pay for our garbage pick up, it's called property taxes.
