Gerald Checco with Public Services said the city is not ready to implement those new waste regulations anyway. He said his department will be working on amendments. He made a presentation Monday to city council’s neighborhood committee.
The changes would let some households have more than one container as long as it can be picked up by the city's automated trash trucks.
