D.C. looking for new trash cans
WASHINGTON (AP) - The District of Columbia is looking for new trash cans.
The Washington Examiner reports that Mayor Vincent Gray's $10 billion budget proposal contains a $10 million plan to replace an array of trash cans and recycling bins.
Gray wants to replace all of the city's 96-gallon green trash cans called "Supercans" over the next two years. Many of the current cans are more than a decade old and starting to show signs of age. The city also wants to replace 32-gallon trash cans that are collected twice a week and 32-gallon recycling cans.
The Department of Public Works charges $62.50 for the Supercan and $45 for the 32-gallon trash and recycling cans.
