Titus Wants User Fees For Trash Pick-Up

While the city looks into switching garbage pick-up to a completely in-house operation which would save it half a million dollars a year, Councillor Chris Titus says that is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to revamping the system.

He tells CHSJ News user fees for garbage disposal is the direction the city should be going in.

He says there are taxpayers in the city who are not getting their garbage collected while others are putting out too much trash.

He says other major changes to be considered include limits on how much trash you can put out, bi-weekly pick up for everyone, and the use of trash carts.
