Waste Hauling Proposal Gets Hostile Reception At Public Hearing


A proposal to have Springfield residents pay for trash pickup through their utility bill is getting a chilly reception from many people. 

 

At the first in a series of public hearings on the proposal Wednesday, most speakers objected to the plan… calling it unnecessary or fearing that it’s the first step toward limiting consumers’ choices for waste hauling. 

 

Many people who attended the meeting at Southside Christian Church on South MacArthur wanted to know what accommodations would be made for people who share the cost of trash pickup, dispose of their garbage through their own businesses, or spend the winter months out of state.  City officials say they are still working on ways to deal with those situations.
