Ill. City Searches for Funding to Replace Refuse Fleet

December 18, 2013

Facing opposition to privatize refuse collection at the City of Quincy, Ill., Mayor Kyle Moore recommended tripling garbage sticker prices to $1.50 and imposing a franchise fee for private haulers.

Moore said this would allow the city to replace seven of its nine refuse trucks; set aside $100,000 per year for vehicle replacement; and replace trucks every two years, reports the Quincy Herald-Whig.

The city faces a $1 million shortfall in the garbage program this fiscal year, along with the need to replace the nine-truck fleet. Moore will seek public feedback before moving forward with any plans, the newspaper reported.
