In my neighborhood, there is no single garbage collection company that collects trash on a set day. Instead, there are twenty companies that collect trash everyday. And therefore, our roads are completely destroyed each year, and we have to beg and plead with Cathy Cloutier and Debbie Capano Hudson (now gladly replaced by Krista Griffith) to get them to complain to DelDOT, and then maybe in a few years, after my car has disappeared into the mile wide crater of a pothole on Shellpot Drive, DelDOT will resurface the roads.
Wouldn’t it make sense for the neighborhood association to contract with a company after a competitive bid process to do the entire neighborhood so as to save our streets? Why yes, yes it does. This Act allows Civic Associations in unincorporated areas of New Castle County to create garbage collection districts for units in their subdivision or housing development and contract for garbage collection.
