Benton Harbor City Manager Darwin Watson is hoping residents will hear his message about garbage collection now that a new company has been picked to provide the service. The contract isn’t signed yet, but We-Cycle Industrial Sanitation starting making pick-ups this past week after being selected for the job last month. The problem is that it hasn’t provided folks with bins yet. City Manager Watson tells us, for the next two months, residents have two options.
“You can put your bags out on the curb,” Watson said. “However you can also put them out in containers.”
In fact, Watson says it’s better to just go out and buy a garbage can. We-Cycle has hired six Benton Harbor residents to work as trash haulers, according to Mayor Marcus Muhammad.
