The team at Montgomery Media’s News-Herald have started reporting their story about the local trash system.
Residents pay $3.25 for each trash bag as a way to fund the program.
According to the News-Herald’s report:
… Perkasie Borough Assistant Manager Andrea Coaxum, the program is not intended to punish anyone, but to provide a cost incentive for recycling.
Borough bags are priced to cover all expenses associated with trash removal, including employee salaries, transportation, vehicles, landfill fees, leaf and bundled branch collection, and the recycling center.
