Trash Tags Could Soon Be A Thing Of The Past

The debate continues today on how to make trash fee enforcement more efficient and effective in Lynchburg. It’s been about a year since the change was approved, and yet discussions continue on how to best transition away from a trash tag system. City Council is expected to be briefed by Public Works regarding the revamping plans to phase out the tags in favor of using new prepaid trash bags. Officials say replacing the tags with the specially marked 32-gallon bags, would make enforcement easier. The city would continue selling decals for trash carts, but tags would be discontinued for all users. In addition to the bags, Public Works proposes to start issuing $25 tickets to non-compliant households. If approved, the new program could be implemented as soon as April.
