Blogger Jason Patzfahl wrote last week that he heard some Greendale officials want to get out of the garbage business, and instead contract with a private company.
When Patch went to the village to see if that was true, we found something a little different. Instead of garbage pickup being on officials' minds right now, it's recycling.
The Village of Greendale will soon review and likely renew the refuse and recycling contract.
Currently, Greendale pays a company to collect recycling from the curb every two weeks. Significant changes are being considered for the 2013 year, including having village staff pick up recycling instead of contracting it out. Village staff told Patch this could potentially save money.
The village budgeted to purchase a refuse or recycling hauler in 2013. Village Manager Todd Michaels said more information will be released Friday.
