Tyrone proves single-hauler best

Kudos to Tyrone for being the only Blair municipality to figure out how to take out the trash.

Here in Altoona, property owners are on their own to contract a hauler, but there is no ordinance requiring them to do so.

If they do, they will pay a significantly higher rate than Tyrone’s single-hauler rate.

Local business leaders trying to lure corporations to relocate here will have a hard time explaining why one of the most basic of public services is not provided.
