Cincinnati is a step closer to trashing its current policy of residents only being able to put out one container of garbage for pick-up. Some have widely criticized the requirement and the city has never really enforced it.
If Council approves the changes, residents will be able to use additional containers.
Cincinnati officials will likely amend a controversial policy put in place last fall which limited most households to one container of trash per week.
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.
