What Kind of Green is Dyster's Garbage Plan?

July 15, 2014

We believe the question should be: asked: Is Niagara Falls Mayor Paul A. Dyster's new garbage plan a revenue driven plan?

Under the guise of caring about recycling, Cleveland set a goal to increase trash violation tickets to 4,000 per year after they installed new totes with radio chips program. 

Prior to acquiring new totes, Cleveland issued about 600 tickets a year for garbage offenses. 

It shot up to 2,900 within one year.

Tickets for failure to recycle were set at $100 each.

If Dyster's plan works, garbage violators may add millions to the city's coffers. He can pretend to be green (environmental) and really have a different green (dollars) in mind. 

After drastically reducing garbage service Niagara Falls residents have enjoyed for years, Dyster can fine them for not complying with the harsh new measures, with impossibly high goals for recycling and preposterously low limits of refuse disposal.  

While he gets his money off the backs of the people, he can preach to them how bad they are for not being green and recycling. 

It's a perfect recipe for revenue enhancement. Who can argue against recycling?
