WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The West Lafayette City Council will continue to discuss expanding trash and recycling services.

As News 18 has reported, a proposed ordinance would align the utility service area with the trash and recycling area. There are about 1,100 people who receive sewage services outside of city limits. They would then be included in the trash and recycling routes.

Earlier this month, the council tabled the ordinance after representatives from the neighborhood, The Orchard, spoke against it.

Heading into the Monday's meeting, the ordinance is the same. However, Councilman Steve Dietrich said there's another one drafted that does not include those neighbors.

"Their constituents were against it and they had ample trash pick-up, so it seemed to make sense with 120-140 house total, just to see if that's a possibility and what impact that would have on the entire plan," said Dietrich.

Dietrich said he will be seeking more answers from both the city and neighbors at the meeting on Monday.
