Kalamazoo City officials say they may rethink a decision to cut back on bulk trash pick-ups. The city cut the number of trash collections from once-a-month to six times a year in 2016 to save money. But Kalamazoo County Drain Commissioner Pat Crowley says that's hurt the environment, and neighborhoods. Crowley spoke to city commissioners on Monday, June 19.
"With the cutback from monthly city bulk pick-ups, contractors, landlords, and regular citizens are simply skipping out on their legal obligations and choosing to dump on others."
