STL County's trash plan proves tough sell

In case you missed the report in the St. Louis Post Dispatch on Tuesday, September 25, here it is:

More than five years after St. Louis County started looking at a new solid waste ordinance, residents are still arguing over who will take out the trash.

The new ordinance, scheduled to take effect Jan. 1, is supposed to streamline a process that has been notoriously uneven.But earlier this week, about 800 county residents gathered in the Affton High School auditorium to hear details of the plan and, more often than not, voice their displeasure with it.
