Cottage Grove garbage hauling ordinance amended


In the wake of a recent debate regarding the number of contracted trash haulers within the city of Cottage Grove, the City Council voted 4-1 to clarify its ordinance to better explain why the three hauler limit has been reached.

Late last year, a metro-area trash hauling company tried to apply for a hauling license but was stonewalled after the city said it already had three haulers, the maximum under city ordinance.
