City Council mulls raising Toledo's trash pickup fees

(WTOL) - Toledoans might soon be paying more for trash service.

A proposal to raise the garbage fee is back on Toledo City Council's agenda. If approved, Toledoans would pay $7 per month if they recycle, and $10 per month if they don't.

The proposal includes a rewards program for recycling.

The fee increase would raise an extra $400,000 this year to help offset the city's budget deficit.
