Alleyway Dumpsters To Stay In Wichita Falls

Posted: Updated:

Wichita Falls "Trash Surveys" were sent out and have been counted when it comes to alley dumpsters in the city. Those surveys showed people will pay more to keep the dumpsters. But, there is a price.

On Tuesday, City Councilors are expected to approve a hike in the city's waste collection for homes who have dumpsters in their alleyways. The price goes up from $16.75 a month for collection to $19.55 a month.

The increase will bring in$300,000 in additional revenue. That's what city officials expected to save by switching everyone to curbside collection. The Council meets on Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. inside Memorial Auditorium at 6th & Brook.

Newschannel 6 will be there to see what the Council decides Tuesday morning.
