Commercial Trash Pick Up Hearing Scheduled at City Hall on February 27

An announcement from City Councilor At-Large, Felix Arroyo:

Good Afternoon,

We have heard from constituents throughout the City who are awoken at 2, 3, or 4 in the morning by the sounds of garbage trucks in their neighborhood. Under current state law, the City of Boston can regulate the times for residential trash pick up, but CANNOT regulate the times for commercial trash pick up. To remedy this, I have filed a Home Rule Petition, co-sponsored by Councilor Mike Ross that would allow the City of Boston to regulate commercial trash pick up times.

On February 27, 2012, beginning at 5:30 PM, there will be a Boston City Council hearing on this matter. I hope that you will be able to attend the hearing to support our legislation. The details are below and if you have any questions, please contact Joy DePina at 617-635-4205 or at

What: Commercial Trash Pick Up Hearing
When: Monday, February 27th at 5:30PM
Where: Boston City Hall 5th Floor, Iannella Chamber

Sincerely, Felix G. Arroyo Boston City Councilor At-Large One City Hall Square, 5th Floor Boston, MA 02201 617-635-4205
