Sydney trash update

Mayor Cecil Clarke says there’s still a chance there will be a heavy garbage pickup in the spring. His comments came after council passed a bidget which did not include the $250,000 or so extra cost of picking up heavy items like furniture and appliances. That’s because of the heavy pickup in the fall after the Thanksgiving flood.

Clarke told the Cape Breton Post the municipality is looking for public feedback on the issue and there’s still a possibility it could come back to council for reconsideration.
