Residents meet with city over garbage pickup


Earlier this year, city crews cleaned alleyways throughout Newcastle to help clear a path for garbage pickup, but some alleys proved to be more difficult than others. That led the city to request that homeowners on Frontier and Highland Avenues relocate their trash cans from their shared alley to the streets, but the request raised concerns for many of those homeowners.

Residents affected by the change received a letter dated Sept. 11 informing them that their trash would be collected in front of their residences, instead of in the alleys, beginning on Sept. 26. Troubled by the change, a number of people approached the council to discuss the issue.
