Leominster expands recycling program to condos

The Sentinel and Enterprise has the good news that the city will be placing recycling recepticles at condominium communities. The first one community to receive the service went online yesterday.

It's nice to see the city offering communities some city services. Although condo owners pay the same property tax rates as other homeowners, they do not receive curbside trash collection, recycling, or street clearing during the winter months.

In announcing the initiative, Mayor Mazzarella said "It has a major effect, not only on the environment, but on the cost. The more you recycle, the less you pay for trash pickup." Hopefully by dropping the cost of trash pickup citywide, the mayor and city council will be more willing to offer condo communities trash services as well.
