How many years do the citizens in northern Trinity County have to pay for full dumping rights at Hobel Transfer Station and not have access to getting rid of E-waste, dead batteries, etc. We have not been able to dump yard waste, brush, yard cleanups for at least six years!

The Solid Waste supervisor has been promising for many years that all this would be resolved, LOTS of promises, but only lip service!

The county recently bought a $500,000+ piece of equipment that was going to be used to shred all that brush and yard waste located in the transfer location only to find that when the equipment operates it could cause fires! Evidently, they did not do too much research before spending that big amount of the taxpayer’s money. We could have paid that to some contractor to get rid of the waste, don’t you think?

Meanwhile, we continue to pay our $100 fees, tipping fees and unfortunately our fuel bills for that long trip to Weaverville and back. Shame on our local government for allowing this to go on for so long!

Maybe if this was pot-related, we would get action!
