My wife and I have lived in Fair Lawn since 2000 and we recently got a dog. Since getting a dog we have noticed that we have a SERIOUS litter problem because of the system that we have for collecting paper garbage. Also our dog has quite an appetite for paper so it makes walking him an interesting game. Residents of Fair Lawn place paper garbage on the curb and all it takes is a little wind to come and you get Amazon box tumbleweed everywhere. We have collected a series of pictures and videos that are so bad that sometimes all you can do is laugh. We have laughed enough and now it is time for change to how we collect paper garbage. 

Solution #1: We have seen this in neighboring towns like Ridgewood and the paper garbage and other garbage isn’t brought to the curb but instead just left in the side yard. Then the garbage collectors come to the side yard to take garbage. This may cost more because it will take longer to collect garbage.

Solution #2: End paper garbage collection at the house and residents can bring it to the recycling center when convenient for them. This will SAVE money because we won’t need paper garbage collectors to come to people’s homes.

Solution #3: Implement solution #2 and increase plastic recycling collection to once weekly. This is revenue neutral because it replaces paper garbage collection with plastic recycling collection.

All three solutions will make Fair Lawn cleaner and one of the solutions actually saves money for the town so LESS TAXES! Please sign the petition so we can no longer have Amazon box tumbleweed and not live in Litter Lawn.
