If Not PAYT, Then What?

Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia II tells WSAR that if some members of the City Council want to put an end to the current Pay As You Throw program for the removal of trash, and as a means to encourage recycling, then someone needs to devise a method to replace the three million in revenue from the program that is currently part of the FY 2017 Fall River Municipal Budget. 

 

Correia tells the ''WSAR Newsroom'' that the program cannot end on a whim, as the DOR would not likely allow a revenue producing enterprise to simply end; the contract with the North Carolina based Waste Zero has a 90 day out clause should the city decide to exercise it.
