  1. Mayor Jimmy Taxes ripping off taxpayers AGAIN!!
    He charges a fee for residents to drop items off, and then turns around resells them at a profit.

    Every single item listed on the “not acceptable list” can be recycled through a scrap recycling company. There are several companies on Hale Street that you can bring those items to and they will pay you fee based on the weight of the item.

    Why bring these items to the DPW and pay a fee to drop them off, when you can simply drop them off at a scrap yard, avoid the fee, and get paid for it?

        • You normally list out proof for your theories. Paul, above, has listed his company an option to sell scrap to. But you where is your proof the city sells the collected materials?

          • mt….Haverhill Salvage is one of the companies I referred to on Hale Street. I’ve gone there several times in the past…they make it easy to drop off your items, and they pay cash.
            With all due respect, mt, what do you think the DPW is doing with the items collected? Putting them in a landfill? In the past Jimmy Taxes has contracted with a private scrap business who takes the items collected. That company pays the city based on a per pound basis of what is collected. Scrap companies then sell the items to Chinese companies who reprocess them for any precious metals…gold and silver….using slave labor.
            The mayor is charging a fee for citizens to drop off items he then makes profit on. Sleazy!
