I thank the Portage County Recycling Center for going to a single container collection system. This will help us and many other residents.

However, I am not thankful for Portage County recycling officials assuming that I do not like writing a check for $30 once a year and acting as Big Brother and including the fee in my tax bill. What happens if I do not want to recycle?

They tell us this will save on administrative costs, including postage. Will we ever see a reduction in the cost?

Please, Big Brother, do not help me again. Lastly, where were our City Fathers when this was occurring?
