SunDay Cartoon: He won't be stopped

New London Mayor Michael Passero backs a proposal to shift New London's garbage collection to a pay-as-you-throw system. The City Council votes this month on whether to implement the program.

The current trash-removal program is inequitable, Passero said earlier this month, since taxpayers are subsidizing a system used by businesses, apartments owners and nonprofits alike. The larger and tax-exempt entities are spreading the higher cost of trash removal to taxpayers, he said.

“The (yellow) bags are the method of metering your waste,” he said. “You only have to pay for what you generate.”
