Possible changes to solid waste in Memphis
I was assigned to cover what was sure to be a boring meeting at city hall regarding sanitation. But the focus became clear thanks to a comment by the public works director. He said the city wanted to eliminate weekly trash pick-up. Say what? I envisioned the public outcry that would likely follow once I put it out there. I even included reactionary tweets in my story. For the record, the city wants to collect quarterly while offering drop-off locations. You'd have to pay more for more frequent pick-up.
