The City of Bloomington posted a link yesterday so citizens can track the progress of The Great Garbage Spring: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/Components/News/News/6899/
I’ve heard potholes aren’t being filled, 2 additional trucks have been rented, and it might take a month to remove all the curb junk. Scrappers and curb shoppers are removing some and making the mess bigger by sorting through the piles.
How much is this costing? The disposal fees are going to be astronomical. Since the landfill was close to full, did this hastened its demise?
Changing to twice a year is a learning experience. Hopefully the change will eventually save money.
Information on brush pickup is available at the link above as well as dropping off bulky items at the Citizens Convenience Center. Since the announcement failed to post those hours and they have changed: http://www.cityblm.org/government/departments/public-works/garbage-bulk-waste-recycle
