Assembly to consider mandatory trash law

Posted: Monday, February 22, 2010

JUNEAU - The Juneau Assembly will consider adopting a mandatory universal trash pickup ordinance for all residents, businesses and nonprofit groups within the Juneau roaded service area at its meeting this evening.

The ordinance would take effect 60 days after the Regulatory Commission of Alaska transfers the necessary certificate from Arrow Refuse to the city, which could take until August. Arrow will continue pickup after that period.

Existing Arrow customers would see no initial change in their rates and would need to take no action, according to information provided by the city.

Those who are not Arrow customers would have 60 days after the certificate transfer to sign up for collection or pay a $50 fine.

The Assembly also will consider rezoning a parcel of land along Glacier Avenue from D-18 residential to light commercial.
