St. Paul organized trash collection discussion

The League of Women Voters-St. Paul is hosting a discussion about the move to organized trash collection on July 12 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Hayden Heights Library, 1456 White Bear Ave., in the Bear’s Den room. The League will be joined by two members of the city’s solid waste/recycle staff. As St. Paul transitions to organized collection, this will give residents an opportunity to learn what prompted the city to explore the change, how the city arrived at the system that will be used (independent haulers dividing up the city for collection routes) and the plan for implementation. There will be time for questions and answers as well. There is a parking lot that is handicapped accessible. The library is located on bus lines 64N and 80.
