Planning Continues for new FD Trash Pickup System
The City of Fort Dodge continues to move forward with plans of phasing in a new trash collecting and recycling system. Following Monday evening's council meeting, the council had a workshop to discuss options regarding containers residents would receive to accommodate the new system. Public Works Director Greg Koch received direction from council to go out to bid for new the new containers. While no specific dates are known yet, Koch said the city anticipates receiving two new packer trucks in January, and the new containers could be phased in then. Once the system is in place, trash will continue to be picked up every week, while recycling will be picked up every other week.
