Garbage Collaboration Studied by Cities

 

The future of garbage pick up in La Crosse and Onalaska could involve garbage trucks with mechanical arms that grab cans curbside. That will be one of the issues under discussions when reps from the two cities meet today to talk about some of the ideas in a recent garbage study conducted in the county.  Also under discussion will be how to make the whole garbage collection process more fair.  La crosse public works director Dale Hexom says currently garbage pick-up is not equitable because everyone pays for it through property taxes but not everyone throws away the same amount of stuff. Primarily, the two cities are seeking ways to collaborate on waste to make the whole process more effective and efficient.
