Trash pickup to be discussed in Manchester

Owners of multi-family housing in Manchester would have to arrange and pay for their own trash collection, under an ordinance to be proposed at tonight's town council meeting.

Currently, the town provides trash collection for multi-family housing as well as for single-family units.

"The only reason a landlord has a two-, or three- or four-unit place is to make money," said Manchester Town Manager Terry Short. "If it's just out there as a business, it's a business and should be treated as such."

Owner-occupied units are "a different story," Mr. Short said. Owner-occupied buildings with two units are exempted from the change under the draft proposal.
