Taking advantage of early spring cleaning

Editorial

Posted: Friday, November 30, 2007

In case you haven't noticed, the Kenai Peninsula Borough is trying to make a good impression.

The borough's Solid Waste Department has waived the normal fees and limits in its effort to encourage disposal of junk vehicles.

Apparently it's working.

"We're up to about 1,500 junked cars now having been removed from the borough (in a little over a year)," Mayor John Williams told the assembly earlier this month.

In an effort to continue this success, the borough is continuing to waive the fees until the end of the year, and since there's no snow on the ground yet it's a good time to take them up on their offer.

Commercial haulers normally pay a fee of $10 per vehicle when they are dropped off at the landfills. That fee and a 10-vehicle limit also may be extended into the new year. But why wait?

If the borough is willing to make it easy to do your spring cleaning early, why not take advantage of it?

Look at it this way, it's one less resolution to add to your list for the new year.

Kudos to the borough for helping make the peninsula even more scenic.
