Norwalk sanitation superintendent Jeff Montgomery wanted to clear up several issues Wednesday regarding trash.
Montgomery had heard the recent discussion among city officials about the privatizing of city trash collection.
A local resident, at a recent council meeting, said the city could save $10 to $20 per ton if a private company hauled city trash.
"That saving $10 or $20 per ton, that's just not true," Montgomery said. "The county has flow control and that's the law. You pay $54 per ton. It doesn't matter who you are."
Montgomery said this morning city residents, who have an average household income of $44,000, pay $9.16 per month for trash collection and other related service, like yard waste and leaf pickup.Find more of this story and other exclusive content in the Norwalk Reflector print edition or the E·Paper online newspaper.
