When the city of Paris changed its residential trash pickup from twice a week to once a week, it inadvertently did not consider the additional six bags residents are allowed during “bulk pickup days.”
“In making that change (from two-day to one-day pickup), the City amended its trash pickup ordinance to allow for pick up 12 bags of trash from each residence per day of trash service,” the city announced late Monday afternoon. ”In doing so, the City inadvertently and unintentionally failed to take into account the fact that under the old ordinance each residence has been able to set out an additional 6 bags of trash on bulk pickup days.”
City officials said residents are allowed to place up to 18 bags of trash for pickup, or 18 bags per week. To become official, the city council will have to approve this amendment, re-amending the most recent amendment to the code. Council “will most likely” approve this on June 27, 2022.
“We apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused.”
