In Print: Garwood's Bulk Pilot Program Nets Surplus

Bulk Garbage- two words that have dominated much of the political discourse in town over the past year. But, it seems the pilot program, with fees, was a success. The Garwood Council reports the bulk pickup program saw a $1,797 surplus, according to a published report in the Westfield Leader. 87 permits were purchased in town at $55 dollars a pop, stats show. The town had estimated that nearly 100 homes were going to take part. The bulk pickups were made on September 29th and 30th, but, residents had to register for the pickup by August 15th. The elimination of free bulk garbage pickup was discontinued for budgetary reasons.

So, what do you think? Was the bulk garbage pickup program a success? Vote today!
