This measure asked residents if they wanted mandatory trash and recycling collection to be implemented in the county.[2] Though this is just an advisory question, city officials are encouraging a 'Yes' vote. This would help reduce strain on the county landfill and reduce costs to residents. Currently only some communities receive curb side trash pick up and this measure would implement it county wide and create a uniform system for everyone.[3] The county also hoped with this trash measure to further encourage recycling in the county which would also end up costing less for residents. The new system would have trash collected three times per week, once a week for trash, recycling and yard trash. The county was looking for companies which could offer competitive services.[4]
