Ord 18-40 9/27/2018 7:33 PMScott Jensen Against I am the president of the St. Anthony Greens Townhomes homeowner ***ociation, a 40-unit townhome development at the corner of Territorial Road and Seal Street in South St. Anthony Park. Our development was built in 1983 and consists of four 6-unit blocks and four 4-unit blocks, and was designed for common dumpster use. We have always had dumpster service, paid for in our monthly ***essments. Under this ordinance, the city is compelling our 16 units in 4-unit blocks into its trash hauling scheme, while excluding the remaining 24 units in 6-unit blocks. This severely undermines our ***ociation's ability and responsibility to provide equitable, efficient, and economical service to all our homeowners. Under this ordinance, the aggregate expense for just those 16 units nearly doubles what we currently pay for the whole ***ociation, and we will still need to arrange trash removal for the remainder of our homeowners. If this plan was intended to be efficient and equitable, it fails miserably. +3

Instead of benefiting from touted savings (via energy and efficiency of geography), consumers city-wide will pay MILLIONS of DOLLARS more each year.

My husband and I have a small bungalow in St. Paul that we use as our "Urban cabin" when we visit our adult children. Any garbage generated there is taken HOME with us to our home in Southern Minnesota. Just create an option for people who spend a limited time in the city! So easy!!
Ord 18-39 8/29/2018 2:42 AMGerald Against "the leanest service option costs $9.36 per collection, or 27 cents per gallon, while the 95-gallon cart costs $7.88 per collection, or 8 cents per gallon." I'd quit recycling to get my money's worth of my 35 gallon every other week service but then you will increase the property tax ***essment for recycling due to lower volume. Please don't force us to subsidize the "wasters" by adopting this unfair pricing structure. +2

Ord 18-39 8/13/2018 12:42 AMDebbie Against I support the idea of coordinated trash collection, but this specific plan as written should be s****ped. We generate only 1-2 gallons of trash per week for a 3 person household. Even with 35 gallon service every other week, we'll be paying for service we don't need and subsidizing big trash producers, as the pricing provides a perverse incentive. Why are we giving volume discounts to generate more waste? There is an easy fix that would make people conscious of the trash they produce and encourage them to produce less: charge by straight volume from the first gallon, no bulk discounts.  Our household does not use Christmas tree disposal, and will be subsidizing those who do. We also do not discard 3 bulky items per year. Again, there is an easy and equitable fix: consider the tree a large item, and let households choose to purchase large item disposal, either per item or per year. +3
Ord 18-40 8/6/2018 6:18 PMNora Fitzpatrick Against I am concerned and frustrated over the new requirement that each household within a 2-4 family building have a separate garbage can. We are a duplex and our family lives in both units, no tenants. Due to efforts to compost and recycle, we never fill our bin. We DO NOT NEED two bins. I was truly excited by the prospect of centralized garbage pickup and supported it . I never heard about this specific requirement and object to the lack of transparency on this very important point. Our costs of garbage pickup will increase significantly. The trucks will double their work and with two recycling bins and two garbage bins, there is the very real potential of alley obstructions because of the increased clutter. Please consider the negative impact this will have on the neighborhood and vote NO. +3

I can tell you why -- the requirement to have each dwelling unit have their own bin is absurd. It encourages more waste, both physical garbage and money being ransacked from residents.

No options for the public to reduce costs. A terrible plan as is. excessive costs, and, as I understand the pricing, this violates some city ordinances related to Trash.

My neighbors and I recycle and organics recycle and we have very little trash each week, sometimes nothing in a week. No one should be forced to have trash collection, the cost is also outrageous and you need to change this plan. +2
Ord 18-39 8/2/2018 10:25 PMLinda Barnett Against I am against not being able to share trash collection with my neighbors. Four neighbors share trash now and we never fill our container. We all recycle and do organic recycling so we have very little trash. No one should be forced to have trash collection if we don't want it. Also the cost you are charging us is outrageous. +4
Ord 18-39 8/1/2018 10:14 PMTim Harwig ward 4 Against While favoring centralized pick up, I oppose the structure of the agreement requiring separate bins - and extra charges - for each household in small multi family units. It’s not reasonable to place the burden of extra maintenance and a tripling of existing rates. The City’s stayed position that this was necessities placate the desires of trash haulers is both preposterous and out of touch with the needs of its constituents. I’d rather maintain our current structure, however ridiculous, +2
Ord 18-39 8/1/2018 7:38 PMKate Leisses Against I am concerned and frustrated over the new requirement that each household within a 2-4 family building have a separate garbage can. We are a triplex and have been served by a single 95 gallon can for the past 20 years. I was truly excited by the prospect of centralized garbage pickup and supported it publicly in the neighborhood. At no time did I hear about this specific requirement and worry about the lack of transparency on this very important decision. Our costs of garbage pickup with nearly triple – from $30 per month to $75 per month. Unfortunately, we can’t absorb this monthly increase and will have to p*** it on to our tenants. That’s a $25 per month / $300 per year increase for each tenant. The trucks will triple their work and the duration at the garbage station and there is the very real potential of alley obstructions because of the increased clutter. Please reconsider the negative financial impact this will have on the neighborhood residents. +2

Ord 18-39 8/1/2018 2:42 PMJennie Ross Against I support the concept of organized pick-up, however I think the no-opt out and no sharing is contrary to the intent of waste reduction. I currently share with my neighbors in trash removal services, since my average trash generation is less than one grocery-size bag of trash every 2 months because I reduce, reuse, recycle, donate and compost. Your current plan will substantially increase my costs for trash disposal and, more importantly, will discourage me and others from reducing our trash volume. I ask that you consider the ‘message’ that you are sending to the public about trash generation/disposal by not providing for container sharing and/or opt-out for those who are moving towards zero-waste. Please do not adopt the ordinance as it is now, but amend it to provide accommodations for container sharing and/or opt-out. +4

Ord 18-39 7/30/2018 6:30 PMJennifer Stewart Against As one who has consciously worked to reduce their "consumption" and "waste", I oppose the trash collection plan as it is currently. Over many years of increasing both my recycling and backyard composting (after participating in the Mac-Groveland neighborhood Zero Waste workshop programs and home compost collection trial), I have no need for regular trash collection service at my home. By my own efforts, I have been able to minimize my trash collection cost over many years; in fact, I've been an 'as needed pick-up customer' (by calling hauler at beginning of week) with my hauler of 21+ years. As St. Paul was exploring the possibility of organized collection across the city, I attended several neighborhood meetings and also one in a different neighborhood, just to see how the folks in another area felt about this. I liked the idea of organized collection, and I spoke up for myself and others who have worked to minimize their trash output and who need very few annual trash pick-ups. +2
Ord 18-32 7/30/2018 3:15 PMEric Anondson For I no longer live in St. Paul. But I once owned and lived in 1557 Hague about 18 years ago. I bought the house because it was a vibrate commercial district, near desirable neighborhoods, and the house was very low priced. We improved the house by finishing the third floor into livable space, repaired the squirrel damaged roof, and installed the driveway so we wouldn’t have to park on the street anymore. (I wish more homeowners would park on their property instead on whine about others parking on the public streets). I will be sad to see the the first house I ever owned torn down but I support a city growing up, changing, and making even more homes for more people to live in St. Paul. Existing residents shouldn’t get to create moats and walls with the zoning code to keep new residents out unless they meet an income test to acquire from an artificial shortage. I’m glad my first house can be part of creating homes for even more people. This will make Snelling and Selby even greater. +1

Ord 18-40 7/27/2018 10:54 PMAlisa Lein Against Please vote NO on this ordinance. Not allowing multifamily units to share a cart(s) is unreasonable. No allowing residents who actively work to lower waste pay more per gallon to dispose of their waste is unreasonable. No allowing zero waste residents to opt out of a monthly trash bill is unreasonable. Many fine details were missed in the 5 year contract between the City and the Haulers. Please vote no on this ordinance and re-negotiate a better contract for all stakeholders. Have the organized trash program be a successful and positive rollout for St. Paul, not a "let's roll it out and fix all of the problems later". The huge increases to many landlords for the same level of trash service today WILL result in rent raises to tenants and the goal of the city to provide more affordable housing gets ****her and ****her away from being able to happen. Do not punish tenants with this unnecessary rent raise. Allow multifamily to SHARE trash carts! +7

As a property manager of over 180 tenants in St. Paul, tenants should be treated equally and not ***umed to be less engaged in politics than a homeowner. I am 100% for the City and the channels which exist already today to encourage everyone to vote and have their voice heard in each and every election. As a property manager, when asked, I am very happy to provide voter registration information to my tenants. I am NOT OK with being told by the City I am REQUIRED provide voter registration information to all of my tenants. Please do not put this duty on landlords.

Ord 18-40 7/27/2018 1:44 PMDaniel Brown Against This City of Saint Paul Ordinance will dramatically increase garbage collection costs for multi-family dwellings (rentals and condominiums). I have lived in my duplex for 25 years and have managed very well with one large garbage can that I share with my tenants, an arrangement that has worked very well. This ordinance will now require me to have two cans, effectively doubling the cost of garbage collection. This ordinance will also litter our alleyways with unneeded garbage cans, drive up rental rates across the city and force thousands of St. Paul residents to pay for garbage cans they do not need or want. This new cost, plus the per-can property tax ***essment, come on top of several years of significant property tax increases. This ordinance is a big mistake. +4

Ord 18-39 7/14/2018 5:46 PMPeter Butler Against The new trash program is giving haulers a $2-$3 million-dollar yearly windfall by requiring residents who currently share to have their own service and for landlord to provide each rental unit its own cart. The Council is putting the haulers' interest first, supposedly in the name of helping small family businesses. Only one of the city's 11 licensed haulers is a family business LOCATED in St. Paul. The other small haulers are located in Hugo, West St. Paul, Mendota Hts, Inver Grove Heights, Newport and Forest Lake. Residents first! +4
Ord 18-42 7/12/2018 10:22 PMEric Lein Against This amounts to one more "unfunded mandate" that ***umes tenants (but not homeowners) are incompetent and unable to figure out how to register to vote. Good grief! If the City/County/State cannot get voter registration information into the hands of potential voters, it should not fall only on Landlords to save the m***es. To carry this proposed ordinance's thinking to a logical conclusion, EVERYBODY should be forced to distribute voter registration information --- realtors (at time of closing), employers (at time of hiring), attorneys (upon meeting a new client), city council members (at neighborhood meet-and-greets, and at all public hearings in council chambers), trash haulers (once a year to leave a hang-tag on every trash cart), restaurant owners (when customers pay for meals), etc., etc., etc. THERE IS FAR TOO MUCH "MICROMANAGEMENT" IN TODAY'S CITY GOVERNMENT. +4
