Houston Revises Trash Ordinance; New Version Stresses Recycling, Raises Monthly Fee

Mayor Mike Houston will make another attempt at revising Springfield’s trash pickup policies… but without the controversial idea of putting garbage pickup charges on the City Water Light and Power bill. 


That idea killed an earlier trash overhaul ordinance, but Houston’s revised version focuses instead on recycling, increasing the monthly fee charged to all customers and eventually tacking that dollar-50 charge onto the utility bill. 


But critics say the new version doesn’t address the most serious trash issues in Springfield, such as residents who don’t pay for garbage pickup and who illegally dump their trash.
