Ann Arbor City Council considers, and declines to study, biweekly trash pickup

The Ann Arbor City Council decided not to study biweekly trash pickup as a part of its new solid waste plan at its meeting of 7 October 2013.

Council discussed the situation in Portland, Oregon. Consumerist notes that parents there are recycling their dirty poopy diapers. (ew.)

“It started when the city went to every other week garbage pickup,” the president of Far West Fibers, which handles much of the curbside recycling for Portland, tells Oregon Public Broadcasting. “Prior to that you’d get a dirty diaper maybe once a month. Now we get 60 pounds per shift. It’s not pretty.”
