Thunder Bay city councillors are expected to be talking trash at their Monday evening meeting.
A report is slated to go to council tonight that recommends the implementation of a long-term financial plan for the city's solid waste and recycling programs.
One change in the proposed plan is in how recycling efforts are funded — currently, tipping fees collected at the landfill site pay for the program. Administration wants to see that cost covered by property taxes, with dump fees going towards the maintenance of, and projects at, the landfill.
