MAYOR: 'Pay As You Throw' Announcement Today

Mayor Gary Christenson's office will hold a media round-table detailing the PAYT committee's findings.

The Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) and Waste Removal will reveal the findings of their study during a media round-table Tuesday, according to a press release circulated by city hall.

The event is not open to the general public, but is expected to provide on-the-record details to local media about possible reforms to the program.

During the campaign, Christenson promised to "work to include in the city's next recycling and waste management contract: moving to a single stream system, providing residents with larger, covered recycling containers and modifying trash pickup so that no PAYT bag is required until after the first 33-gallon barrel is filled," according to campaign literature, though the committee reportedly explored a number of options while drafting their report.

Malden Patch will have more information as it becomes available.

If it came down to that, I'd just stockpile my trash and then hire a local company to haul it away for less than $100... unfortunately that stinks, and attracts critters.

I know at least Chris is smart enough not to pay $1200. for a glowing apple!

Any laptop worth its salt is going to cost way more than $1200 for what I need it to do, honestly.
