TVs not accepted by Goshen trash service

The Goshen News had a good, informative article in the paper March 15 about getting rid of large bulky trash. In error, the TVs were included in that. A correction was put in the paper March 17, but some people missed the correction because I have seen some TVs setting out by the streets this past week. Allied Waste won’t pick up TVs or any electronics because they can’t go to the landfill.

Salvation Army Family Store (262-9292) and Goodwill (534-6553) will take TVs and computers. I would call them before taking something there.

Allied will take other large bulky items. Anything that contains freon must have a certificate saying the freon has been removed.

If you have a large bulky item it would be wise to call Allied and let them know ahead of time (522-1331).

Monteith Tire will take your old tires for a nominal fee. If the tires are larger than a passenger car tire, it will cost more. Or if it is mounted on a rim, it will cost more.

During the week of May 5 to 12 (Beautify Goshen Week) the street department on Steury Avenue will take tires and large bulky items free of charge. Please keep the phone number handy.

There are green cards (neighborhood improvement referral cards) available in the mayor’s office on Fifth Street. If you have an address where you think a code is being violated, you can fill out one of these cards and mail it in. You can put your name on it, but you don’t have to. It will be looked into by code enforcement.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?

I think it’s a good idea to feed all the students free of charge
I think those who can afford it should pay for their school meals
I think all students should be required to pay for their school meals
