Sudbury council debates collecting 2 bags of garbage every other week
A discussion on garbage collection in Sudbury drew strong reaction from city councillors at Monday's operations committee meeting.
Currently, residents can throw out three bags of trash every week. But staff are considering a change that would limit garbage collection to two bags every other week.
The idea is still being studied.
Coun. Gerry Montpellier says he already doesn't agree with the potential change.
"If one was to ... miss the deadline that we now have for the morning delivery ... you would be sitting with garbage for one month in your house or apartment."
Last year, the city's auditor general presented a report that suggested the change could save Sudbury $2 million.
City council is expected to hear more about bi-weekly garbage collection in 2016.
