The board of aldermen has delayed discussion of whether Newton will switch to an automated trash collection system until its Jan. 7 meeting. The board's Public Facilities Committee recommended the proposal, but its Finance Committee rejected it.
The proposed system would provide each household with a 64-gallon trash container that would be collected each week by a truck with a single driver and automated arm. Currently, there is no limit on the amount of trash residents can dispose of each week, and two employees are required to collect it.
