I am writing about a letter I received from Carla Walter from Townsend Board of Health's office.

I was away for two recycling pickups, and my 88-year-old mom was home. Needless to say, we didn't have anything to put down there on recycle weeks.

They are sending the recycling enforcement coordinator to check my trash!!! Are you kidding me. Do we now have to inform the town of Townsend if we are going on vacation?

This is just crazy! I feel like we have some spies going around town. I have always recycled. I don't need to be threatened with fines and told when to put my trash out.

What's next? You left your lights on?

This is just wrong.
