How many trash collection trucks go down your alley every week? How much do you pay for your trash pickup? Did you know that your neighbor might be paying less?
An alternative system of “organized collection” would allow the City of Saint Paul to negotiate contracts with trash haulers on behalf of residents. Organized collection does not necessarily mean just one trash hauler for the entire City. There are several ways that this system could work, including supporting multiple hauling companies. Many cities that have implemented organized collection have achieved greater efficiency, increased services and/or decreased costs. Currently, each household is responsible for contracting with a trash hauling company individually.
