La Crosse's J & A Committee ok's garbage proposal


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – La Crosse residents may soon have some changes in the way they take care of their garbage and recycling.

Tuesday night, the city's Judiciary and Administration Committee approved a six year contract starting in 2014 with Harter's Quick Clean Up. The full City Council should vote on the contract during their May meetings.

What the proposal means for residents is that they'll be getting free new garbage and recycling carts.   

The goal with the new carts is to improve the amount of recyclables collected, such as plastics, from city residents.

One other change involves stopping automatic yard waste pick-up.  The new contract would require residents to pay for yard waste collection based on how often they want it hauled away.
