Deal would send all city garbage to county site
Placeholder Image
MONROE - Not only is Monroe likely to be under contract to give the county's landfill its garbage again, it will double the amount. That's because the Board of Public Works Monday recommended a new five-year deal with the Green County Solid Waste Management Board that calls for not only residents' garbage to go to the Brodhead transfer station, but commercial garbage as well. Will that hurt local businesses because private haulers will raise their prices to offset costs associated with the new requirements?
