Landlords should provide garbage service

Is it about time for a countywide ordinance requiring landlords to provide weekly garbage service?

Apartment complexes do it. In theory, I'm actually against it. In real life, some people will not pay for it themselves, but would put it in a container if it were there. We are always going to have people like that.

Costs about $15 a month, and the whole neighborhood looks better. Some landlords are too cheap to do it … and they rent to trashy people. Raise the rent if you have to.

Yes, I am a landlord, and it is automatically included in the lease.
