Village of Le Roy switching all trash removal to one day a week -- Wednesdays

posted by Howard B. Owens in Le Roy.

Starting Feb. 6, Village of Le Roy residents used to garbage pick-up on Thursdays will need to start putting out their trash on Wednesdays.

The village, in an attempt to help their refuse collection contractor hold down costs, has agreed to Wednesdays-only pick-ups, eliminating Thursday collection.

"They could really use us to go to one day to help them through these tough financial times," Mayor Greg Rogers said.

Rogers said the switch could help the village stave off a rate increase, though negotiations are not yet completed with the company.

One would think a negotiation of "no rate increase in 2013 and 2014 and we'll agree to move all pick ups to Wednesday. End of discussion.

If I lived in the village, I would be glad those big, noisy trucks are going to be traversing the streets only once a week instead of two.
