Many Ideas Still On Table In Trash Pickup Debate, But Aldermen Downplay Some Suggestions

Listen to the entire interview with Alderman Doris Turner and Cory Jobe on the Jim Leach Show with the player above or download the mp3 here.

The idea of putting waste hauling fees on City Water Light and Power bills remains alive, but a Springfield alderman says other proposed ideas related to garbage collection are not being actively pursued. 


No final plan is in place yet to deal with the problem of people who “fly-dump” or put their trash in someone else’s dumpster without paying for garbage pickup.  Alderman Doris Turner says assessing the charge through the CWLP bill would make it easier to track who isn’t paying their fair share. 


But Turner says at this point, the ideas on the table would not require people to give up their current waste hauler or change the day of the week for their assigned pickup.  A final draft could be ready in a month.
