BX residents may see fewer trucks after the City Council abandons fight over trash plan
Bronx residents may be seeing less trash and fewer garbage trucks after the City Council decided Thursday to abandon its fight with the mayor over his trash plan.
Last week, Mayor Bloomberg (R-NY) vetoed the City Council?s initial rejection of his garbage removal plan. The City Council set a date to vote on an override of the veto, but then canceled it.
City Council Speaker Gifford Miller says he was disappointed the mayor refused to negotiate. Miller also says he still wants to push for changes in the mayor?s trash plan. Under Bloomberg?s plan, each borough will be in charge of its own garbage, and 350 fewer garbage trucks will make trips through the Bronx each day.
