    Article 9 pay as you throw system. The only good thing that might come out of it is maybe people will recycle more..don’t charge for recycled .The down side to pay as you throw I think people will start dumping their trash every .Here some thing you should think of doing if some one is having a state sale or selling there house the owne of the property pull a permit to cover the extra trash. Same apply to people how have 2/3 family houses when the tenent moves out more trash .so instead the people of the town pay more the landlord or the people moving out should pay for the extra trash .
