    With the new Waste Management rate increase, I will now pay over $200 a year for trash service that I use about 20% of the time. I live alone and generate little trash, and can probably go 3 or 4 months without putting my little 20 gallon brown bin out on the curb. I asked the City of Lodi if I could cancel the service and just take my trash to the dump instead. I figure this would cost me at the most $50-60 a year including gas. They said that I MUST use this service because I live within the city limits. I consider this an injustice and think that if this is going to be made mandatory, then we should make it an annual contract and open it up to competitive bidding to make if more affordable. This should be the same for all other services. When I first moved to Lodi in 1997 my total utilities cost was in the $50s, now it is triple that but my pay hasn't tripled. Don't hold us hostage.
