If You Live in Boston and Are Tired of Early Morning Garbage Collection…

…you’ll want to attend this meeting:

Trash Pickup Hearing

It has come to our attention that the City of Boston has taken notice of the many complaints they have received from constituents throughout the City who are awakened at 2, 3, or 4 in the morning by the sounds of garbage trucks in their neighborhood.

Under current State law, the City of Boston can regulate the times for residential trash pick up, but CANNOT regulate the times for commercial trash pick up. To remedy this problem, Felix Arroyo, Councilor At-Large has filed a Home Rule Petition, co-sponsored by Councilor Mike Ross that would allow the City of Boston to regulate commercial trash pick up times.

On February 27, 2012, beginning at 5:30 PM, there will be a Boston City Council hearing on this matter. The Neighborhood Association of the Back Bay encourages NABB members to attend the hearing to support the legislation. The details are below. If you have any questions, please contact Joy DePina at 617-635-4205 or at joy.depina@cityofboston.gov.

What: Commercial Trash Pick Up Hearing
When: Monday, February 27th at 5:30PM

Where: Boston City Hall, 5th Floor, Iannella Chamber

Well done, councilors. Please show up if you can. Barring illness, I’ll definitely be there.
