CITY OF DEMING-Solid Waste Collection Update
The Mayor, City Councilors and staff evaluated public input regarding Solid Waste Collection options. Upon review of these comments and suggestions, staff recommends a multi-pronged approach. In areas with narrow alley or no alley at all, mandatory poly carts will be recommended. All other residential properties will be on a "by demand" basis. Several comments still need to be addressed and are summarized in the bullet points below.
- Code Enforcement
- Alley cleanliness
- Poly cart exceptions
- Pick up schedules
Staff is preparing an amended solid waste ordinance to include specifics for both voluntary and mandatory use of poly carts. The draft will be made available in late June or early July for public review followed by a public meeting. Comments and suggestions will be evaluated and incorporated into the draft ordinance, if warranted. Time and place of the meeting is to be determined but sufficient advertising is planned to ensure the public has had adequate time to review and comment on the draft ordinance before a final draft is presented to City Council.
