Statesboro residents could see a minor change in solid waste collection fees as city leaders look for ways to manage hefty trash piles being left for pickup. After receiving complaints about not removing all portions of curbside yard-waste piles that exceed collection regulations limiting the size and weight of loads, public works officials are proposing regulations be lifted and all curbside trash picked up within the city. The move would require additional equipment and personnel to handle the bigger loads, and call for a minimal monthly increase — $2.35 per month — to collection rates, officials say.
