New London to hold public forum on 'pay-as-you-throw' trash idea

New London — The city is holding a public information forum next week to explain how a “pay-as-you-throw" trash system works, including its potential to reduce trash collection and disposal costs for the city.

The city is exploring the benefits of such a system and last year was awarded two grants totaling $54,000 from Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to pay for a study of the system and potential implementation in the city. The City Council has not yet taken up the use of the funds.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Jan. 17 at the Science and Technology Magnet High School Lecture Hall. The forum is open to the public.
