ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) - The Onalaska common council heard pleas Tuesday night for different size garbage and recycling carts.
Starting next month, the city is moving to an automated collection system.
Onalaska chose to provide every resident with 65 gallon carts. That's different from La Crosse where residents could also choose 35 or 95 gallon carts.
The Onalaska council voted Tuesday night to change course and offer different sizes.
The city will cover the cost, though it's not in the budget.
One resident is very happy they listened to the residents. "So I think already they've learned a really good lesson. And we all do, we all make mistakes and learn our lessons through them, so I'm very happy and I think the citizen's of Onalaska should be too," said Char Glocke.
Cart delivery started last week.
Residents have until April to decide if they want to trade in their cart for a different size.23425090
