The People's Republic of Beserkeley can have all the taxes and fees that it desires. I do my best to stay out of that Workers' Paradise.

No cattle in Berkeley.
That right there tells you there is something wrong with it.

""Our (garbage) fee is oversimplified and idealistic," said David Tam, a Berkeley resident and a longtime recycling and reuse activist. "It just needs to be fixed." "

If Mr. Tam was REALLY a dedicated "recycling and reuse activist", he would show his dedication to his cause by waiting at the city dump for each garbage truck, and rifling through the garbage to retrieve all of the recyclables.

But his dedication only goes so far as to want the people do do all the work so he can go on record in the local newspapers as the hero of the recycling world.

California is the perfect place for these folks...a whole country away from me.

The whole Berkeley mindset is oversimplified and idealistic and needs to be adjusted.

Stick it in a landfill. If it ever gets valueable you can dig it up again. Shoosh, its not like we are sending this stuff into space.

Government, local, state and fed, have given up on any pretense that taxes are for services that benefit the people, such as garbage collection. It is supposed to be a service, one that you pay for and this provides the revenue for running the service(it would run better if it were privatized. In my county it is half/half, the dump is government but the garbage collectors are private). Instead, every city and state(the blue ones)are screaming about, and raising, taxes and how they need to generate revenue. Hence, they are not raising garbage in order to pay for garbage collection but to fatten the coffers of the city of Berkeley.

We need to vote as many of these a**hats out of office that we can, starting at a local level which would be the easiest way to start, as voter fraud is not as rampant at city and local levels.
