scottb@herald-mail.com The City of Hagerstown's annual spring Dumpster program starts this week and the revised bulk item pickup program will begin about one month later, Hagerstown officials said last week. While the bulk trash program has changed, the spring Dumpster program for city residents has not. The Hagerstown City Council decided in January to dispose of the curbside bulk trash pickup program, replacing it with one in which residents must schedule and pay for bulk items to be picked up. For more than a decade, Hagerstown residents each spring and fall disposed of unwanted appliances, furniture and other bulky items free through the city's curbside bulk trash pickup program.

Garbage collection schedule to change Hagerstown is going to pick up large trash items earlier that usual this year, and residents will be able to haul such items to a Dumpster more often, the City Council decided Tuesday. The council said the first curbside bulk-trash pickup should be done in March instead of April. The city typically does a second bulk-trash pickup in October. The bulk-trash pickups are usually followed by the city's Dumpster program, under which the city makes a Dumpster available to residents.

BOONSBORO -- Fourteen years ago, when Jenny Sarnecki moved from Montgomery County, Md., to Boonsboro, she brought her blue recycling bin with her. She filled it with recyclables and set it out at the curb. "Nobody picked it up. I was shocked," Sarnecki said. "A neighbor said, 'No, we don't recycle here.'" Since then, she said, conservation efforts within the community have been lackluster. People who chose to recycle took items to a Dumpster provided through a Washington County program.

Spielman said. The Sharpsburg Town Council voted Monday to rebid the contract to Williamsport-based Greenscape Trash Service, provided the company submits additional necessary paperwork. Greenscape submitted a bid of $44,898 per year for garbage collection and Dumpster pickup, which was about $20,000 less than the other bid the town received, town attorney Charles Wagaman said.

Hagerstown residents who have broken or worn out TVs, microwaves, computers and other electronics will have an interesting dilemma this month: Throw them away for free or pay $8 to recycle them? After having a few one-day electronics recycling programs the past two years, Washington County began a regular electronics recycling program in March. County residents can take their electronics to Forty West Landfill to be recycled, for a fee. But the City of Hagerstown is holding its spring Dumpster program the week of April 14, in which city residents can take bulky items such as furniture and electronics to a specific site to discard for free, with most items going into the landfill.

“First of all, I'm not registered as a Republican or a Democrat. I'm simply unaffiliated, but I do vote, every election. Somebody keeps calling in to Mail Call, and I have to assume it's the same person, because hopefully there's not that many people so ill-informed to make the comments made - but somebody keeps saying that since the House representatives were taken over by the Republicans, all these bad things are happening. Just ... actually, the entire Congress is what changes things.

Editor's note: Tim Rowland is on vacation. This column was originally published Dec. 28, 2006 Are you well-organized? Is your desk neat and crisp, with every pencil holder and every project in its proper place? If someone dropped by your home unannounced, would you be fine with it because not so much as a bobby pin is out of place? Are you well-disciplined, with every closet and every cupboard free of clutter? Then you are a LOSER. I take great satisfaction in telling you that.
